Quote: "We find that Professor Cohen has violated the Indiana University policy on sexual harassment by creating a hostile intimidating learning environment for women.   We also find that he violated the sexual harassment policy by retaliating against [J.G.]․ He retaliated against [J.G.] even though the evidence in the original complaint was insufficient to sanction him ․ and we find that Cohen targets women in his derisive and menacing behavior․"

"The Faculty Board of Review's recommendation that Cohen be dismissed was based on its determination that Cohen violated the Indiana University Code of Academic Ethics.   On August 2, 2001, the President of the University sent a letter to Cohen concurring with the recommendations of Chancellor Perrin and the Faculty Board that Cohen be dismissed from the University faculty."
