Quote: "Harvard has taken disciplinary action against a tenured Government professor for sexually harassing a junior faculty member in the department, Government professors confirmed this week.

Jorge I. Dominguez, Harvard's senior authority on Latin American political science, was officially punished this summer ..., after the dean found merit in a grievance the assistant professor lodged."

"Dominguez was recently replaced as chairman of an interdisciplinary Latin American studies committee.

The new chairman, Juan Marichal, Smith Professor of the French and Spanish Languages and Literatures, said yesterday a Faculty administrator asked him to assume the post because of a "serious situation" concerning Dominguez.

Professors said Dominguez was stripped of his post as punishment by Rosovsky for the alleged sexual harassment. The Crimson was unable to obtain any official confirmation of this fact."

"JORGE DOMÍNGUEZ, formerly Madero professor for the study of Mexico and Harvard’s first vice provost for international affairs, who last year was publicly accused of persistent sexual harassment, will lose his emeritus status and the privileges associated with it"
