Notification means notifying BI by providing information about a serious undesirable/objectionable incident or condition, a violation of the law or a violation of our general ethical norms.
Harassment and improper conduct come in many different varieties, where bullying and sexual harassment are the most well-known forms.
Harassment is usually an action that repeats over time, but serious isolated incidents can also be defined as harassment. This can be manifested directly through words, actions or omissions of actions, but also in more indirect ways.
Improper conduct can be defined in many ways that include actions that are contrary to socially accepted norms or that are illegal and which can cause unfortunate mental and physical stress.
A person is being bullied when he or she is exposed to negative actions from one or more persons repeatedly and over a certain period of time. This definition also covers people who have a hard time defending themselves.
Sexual harassment is a collective term for a behaviour that plays on gender, body and sexuality that are experienced as unpleasant, degrading or threatening for the person who is subjected to it.
For example, unwanted sexual attention can be troublesome, scary and devastating, even if the action is not necessarily a violation of the offended person's dignity.
If you are unsure whether your situation is serious enough to notify, you can contact the Student Counselling office for an informal conversation about the situation.
