Incident 8706

Status: Resolved
Role: Faculty
Position: Associate Professor
Discipline: Life Sciences
Specific Discipline: Plant, Environmental and Soil Sciences
Outcome Year: 2017
Outcome Category: Demoted
Specific Outcome: "Sources say the AgCenter’s Title IX probe took several months and ultimately determined there was enough merit to the complaint to take disciplinary action against Baisakh." "The terms of his sanction were highly unconventional, however: Baisakh’s academic tenure was “removed” for a period of at least three years, and he was effectively demoted, though he was allowed to continue at the AgCenter as a researcher. He was also barred from having any graduate students work for him."
