Email to the sexual harassment office at my CUNY school. I’m steering clear of student’s personal information. I’m also avoiding private unsupervised online meetings with my classmates.

I treat all CUNY staff with the utmost respect at all times, regardless if I agree with their policies or not. I love CUNY. I think it’s a great opportunity. The staff is amazing. 

I’m going full steam ahead with schoolwork so I don’t have hours to write a detailed email at this minute. 

Every class this semester is either sending me full contact information and full names of every student and wants me to confirm that I received it or is requiring me to have private internet meetings with students that are not supervised by a teacher. 

I don’t want personal information for any students, female or male. I don’t want to be in any internet group chats with students. I don’t want to be in any private groups with students.

I can get the work done for these classes without having the personal contact information of other students. It’s one thing to be in class but to be interacting with students without a teacher supervising, I don’t think it’s professional. 

I think CUNY is doing a great job with distance learning. The only issue I have is the sharing of student’s personal information between students. Also, I’m not a fan of forcing students to interact with each other online without a teacher supervising. 

I have proven I’m a respectful and serious student. At the end of the day, all the sharing of personal info and a few group meetings should not exclude me from an education because I don’t want to take part in it. 

There have been multiple CUNY teachers fired for inappropriate behavior and misunderstandings with students. I don’t know for sure but I’d imagine there have been students expelled from school because of misunderstandings or inappropriate behavior between students.  

I’m staying clear of interacting with students until I’m back in the bio lab when school opens back up. Even then it will be on a first-name basis and nothing outside of class. 

Please advise what the policy is. 

Thank you and have a great day.

Ever upward and respectfully, 

Mark Pine

I love CUNY.
