Harvard policy for e-mail searches proposed

A task force has recommended that Harvard University be required to notify most people when their e-mails, text messages, or voice mails are searched by administrators — suggestions developed after 14,000 Harvard e-mail accounts were secretly accessed by the administration in 2012.

The proposal, made public on Wednesday, would for the first time create a single policy for accessing electronic records that are kept on university systems and would require the university to keep records of such searches.
