Specific Discipline: Computer science
Outcome Year: 2021
Outcome Category: Resigned
Specific Outcome: "The professor, Walter Lasecki, submitted his letter of resignation and will resign on August 30th. His resignation was announced in a Friday night email from Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) department chairs. The email also says Lasecki will have no in-person contact with University of Michigan students.

According to the Michigan Daily, the professor’s resignation comes after four complaints of sexual harassment against Laskecki which led to an investigation in 2019 by the Office of Institutional Equity (OIE) and a separate investigation by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) which resulted in Laskecki being banned from ACM events for at least 5 years.

The Michigan Daily says they also obtained an email from University Title IX coordinator Elizabeth Seney with information regarding 22 previously undisclosed accounts of sexual harassment by Lasecki."
