Incident 7853 - Resolved


Role: Department
Discipline: Social and Behavioral Sciences

Outcome Year: 2017
Outcome Category: Other
Quote: "UW-Madison's Department of Planning and Landscape Architecture is a newly merged department, which includes an urban planning unit that a series of campus reports said was marred by sexism and allegations of sexual harassment."

"A faculty review committee report released in February said the department's "legacy of sexism" was a problem that "requires immediate, serious attention."

The review prompted UW-Madison to commission an investigation of the department's climate from a consultant, Ann Zanzig, who wrote in her July report that the department had fostered a "'boys will be boys' mentality" that normalized "toxic" behavior."
