In an email to the Math class, the assistant wrote, “Hi Class, I attach the solutions for number 76 and 78,” but when students opened the attachments they allegedly showed screenshots of a sexual nature with her boyfriend.
Some students in her class tweeted about the email.
The story has been picked up by the national press and was also reported by media outlets in the UK and France.
UI spokesperson, Tom Moore, said the incident was an accident before adding, “This incident was inappropriate, and the university will look into it and take appropriate actions under our policies and procedures.”
The university has asked students to delete the files.
