Incident 8645 - Resolved

Role: Faculty
Position: Professor
Discipline: Social and Behavioral Sciences
Specific Discipline: Criminal Justice
Outcome Year: 2019
Outcome Category: Suspended / Leave / Restrictions
Specific Outcome: "In 2016, OIE officials warned Foran of anonymous complaints about his behavior. The warning made “so little impression on [Foran]” that he didn’t remember if he hugged a student before dropping her off, according to an OIE report.

Three years later, Foran was found to have violated MSU’s sexual misconduct policy for inappropriately touching and having overly personal communication with four students and for retaliatory behavior after students refused to attend social events.

The investigation is complete. Foran remains on indefinite unpaid leave, which can be a step in the process of revoking tenure and dismissing faculty. "
