Quote: "In a letter dated May 15, 2019, KU officials told Nitz he was banned from the Lawrence campus for three years. He was already banned from the journalism school.

Nitz had previously been employed by the university as a lecturer in the Department of Film and Media Studies, from January 2012 to March 2015, according to Barcomb-Peterson, the KU spokesperson.

“You have reportedly engaged in a series of predatory sexual behaviors over the last five years in which you have targeted female students after meeting them on campus,” said the letter, signed by Interim Provost Carl Lejuez."
