Quote: "The probe was triggered after a student made sexual harassment complaints against a professor in 2011 and 2012, but the investigation revealed that the school had failed to properly address a slew of other complaints.

The student filed two complaints against the professor a year apart, and it wasn't until the second complaint that Hunter College finally launched an investigation into the matter, according to the education department.

In Hunter College's own report, it found that the professor had "preyed upon the [student's] immaturity and family circumstances, including her mother’s illness, and used interactions with [her] sister in order to further his relationship with [her]."

The school's report also states that the two had a consensual relationship until April 2012, and after that, the professor’s conduct became “non-consensual, uninvited, and unwelcomed … [i]t offended, annoyed and harassed [the complainant]," according to OCR's findings.

In addition to waiting a year of the first complaint to finally take action, the school took another four months to complete an investigation, and didn't report its outcome to the student until months after that, while discussing the results with the professor during that period, according to the education department.

Following its investigation, the school determined there wasn't enough evidence that the professor had retaliated against her. The professor was fired in the summer of 2013 after the school found that his "conduct became inappropriate." "

Quote: "school failed to process a complaint by a then-student who reported a professor had sexually assaulted her for over two years.

The federal agency’s Office for Civil Rights announced the settlement Thursday. Under the terms of the agreement, the university has agreed to offer and pay for counseling and other remedies for the woman to address any psychological, academic or employment issues she faced as a result of the school’s delay in processing her complaint.

The university came under scrutiny after the woman, who was not identified, filed a complaint with the agency in December 2013 alleging the school had discriminated against her on the basis of sex. The agency summarized the findings of its investigation in a 38-page letter addressed to Steven Shirley, the university’s president.

The letter states that the student told the school about “numerous alleged instances of sexual harassment and sexual assault that began in June 2010 and continued through December 2012.” It also explains that the professor had implied to woman that without his assistance she “would be unable to achieve her professional goals.” The woman also said that the professor and others on his behalf had sent her text messages and emails “to discourage her from pursuing any complaint against him.”

The letter does not address whether the professor was investigated by authorities or criminally charged. The agency found no evidence that the university interviewed the professor, faculty or students about the student’s allegations. It also says that the university did not adjudicate the student’s allegation through hearing procedures, as required by the university’s policies. Instead, when the professor resigned in August 2013, the university halted its investigation."

When interviewed, a female professor said that several students had complained about this professor’s conduct towards female students.

After she thanked him for writing the letter of recommendation, he professed in an email that he had romantic feelings for her, writing, “If I was presently your professor and you were my student, I could never have communicated all this to you. There are horrendous rules against it. But, since we are not professor-student, I allowed myself to be incredibly vulnerable — take an enormous risk — demonstrate a huge TRUST in you that this would remain TOTALLY CONFIDENTIAL FOREVER," according to the Title IX investigation. The student wrote back that he had misunderstood her and asked him not to contact her again, the Title IX investigation stated. The professor expressed remorse for his actions to the Title IX investigator and said he "was only expressing his romantic interest" and had "no intention to take it further." The professor retired with emeritus status but is not permitted to work for the UC system in the future."

Quote: "A biologist accused of sexually assaulting and harassing female students while working under a federal grant at a foreign research site stands to lose all government support for five years.

The scientist threatened to derail the scientific careers of graduate students if they complained about him to authorities, according to a recent report to Congress from the National Science Foundation’s inspector general. The accused researcher, who was from an American institution of higher education, was directing studies at a field site in a foreign country under an NSF program designed to give undergraduate students an authentic research experience.

The report did not identify the researcher, his home institution at the time of the alleged incidents, or the foreign country, since the case has not yet been resolved. But it did state that the inspector general’s office had “determined that the researcher had been involved in 16 incidents of sexual misfeasance with female graduate and undergraduate students at the research site; on the way to the site; and in his home, car, and office.”

The report added that “many of these incidents were classifiable as sexual assaults.” The inspector general’s office also determined in an investigation that “these incidents were an integral part of this individual’s performance as a researcher and a research mentor and represented a serious deviation from accepted research practices.” "

Quote: "Under school policy at the time of the 2019 incident, “termination” was a possible punishment for the professor. At first, he was reprimanded but not fired according to Semrau, who said the relationship was reported as “consensual” by the student.

Semrau said the professor was terminated last year after the student, “changed her story.”"

Quote: "John Jay College has placed four professors — including three former department chairmen — on paid leave following sexual-harassment complaints, sources told The Post.

Among the accused are Barry Spunt, an associate sociology professor and former chair of that department; Anthony Marcus, a professor and former chair of the anthropology department; and Ric Curtis, a professor and former chair of the anthropology department and former interim chair of the department of law and police science. An adjunct professor also stands accused."

"Former students Claudia Cojocaru and Naomi Haber alleged in a 2019 federal suit that the college and four professors created “a cesspool of sexism, misogyny, sexual harassment and illegal drug use.”

"Haber and Cojocaru’s suit was settled earlier this year, with CUNY paying $164,499 to each of them and $281,000 in legal fees."

Quote: "After the university in January substantiated her complaints of gender discrimination and sexual harassment against her professor, she received an undisclosed settlement to cover her attorneys’ fees, she said. There was very little left over for other expenses. In exchange for the money, Smith agreed not to sue CSU.

The Post agreed not to identify Smith’s professor or her department because she is still a student and fears retaliation for speaking out.

Smith was denied an education equal to that of her male classmates because she switched the focus of her doctoral research to get away from the professor"

"The university on June 29 revoked the leave, which was to have taken effect July 1, pending the outcome of a review. The designation had authorized the leader/professor to retire 10 months early without pay but still qualify for MSU health benefits and other privileges when he officially reaches retirement next year"

"According to an internal memo, Gupta said that the subordinate personally informed him of his inappropriate behavior sometime in the week after the incident. The name of the official, who resigned June 30, has not been made public because an investigation is ongoing."

Quote: "On March 11, 2020, the lawsuit claims the plaintiff emailed then-Dean of Students Laurie Casteen saying she wanted the professor “to be held accountable for his abuse.” And while a formal Title IX investigation was launched by the end of the month, it took 493 days for the Title IX office to find that the professor had in fact “repeatedly harassed and assaulted” the student."

"A review panel recommended that the professor be terminated from his position at UVa. On July 9, 2021, he resigned. Throughout the Title IX investigation, however, he remained at his post with no suspension or administrative leave, and with “full, unfettered access to students,” according to the lawsuit.

Nearly three months after he resigned, then-Provost Liz Magill issued final remedial measures in a letter prohibiting the professor from being hired for any future position at the university and denying him emeritus status, an honorary title for professors who wish to stay active in scholarship and academia following retirement."
