Incident 7622

Status: Resolved
Role: Faculty
Position: Professor
Discipline: Physical Sciences and Mathematics, Astronomy
Specific Discipline: Astronomy
Outcome Year: 2016

Specific Outcome: "Slater, who remained at Arizona for four years after the investigation, admitted in an interview with Mashable on Sunday that he violated the sexual harassment policy at the university but said that he has since reformed."

"Timothy Frederick Slater, now holds a prestigious position at the University of Wyoming, where he conducts research and mentors graduate students. But a 2004 investigation at Arizona concluded that Slater created a hostile work environment by regularly subjecting students and employees to unwanted sexual conduct — such as gifting a student a cucumber-shaped vibrator, going to strip clubs for lunch and openly commenting on women’s bodies."
