Anti-Bullying

Bullying can also be cyber in nature; specifically, repetitively rude text messages or comments on Twitter, Instagram, or other social media outlets.  If you experience bullying, or are a witness to a bullying incident in this classroom or anywhere on campus, please feel free to approach me and I will take appropriate action. If you are uncomfortable reporting it to me, please visit The University of Toledo’s Anti-Bullying Task Force and complete The Anonymous Reporting Tool. The task force will address the issue, respect your privacy and arrive at the best solution possible.
