Incident 7669 - Resolved
Physical Sciences and Mathematics; Astronomy
Honor Revoked; Resigned
"After a six-month investigation, Geoff Marcy — a professor at the University of California, Berkeley, who has been mentioned as a potential Nobel laureate — was found to have violated campus sexual harassment policies between 2001 and 2010. Four women alleged that Marcy repeatedly engaged in inappropriate physical behavior with students, including unwanted massages, kisses, and groping.
As a result of the findings, the women were informed, Marcy has been given “clear expectations concerning his future interactions with students,” which he must follow or risk “sanctions that could include suspension or dismissal.” "
"Geoff Marcy has resigned from his tenured position at the University of California, Berkeley, the school confirms. Facing criticism, the university defended its decision not to fire him."
