René Olate

Status: Resolved
Institution: Ohio State University
Role: Faculty
Position: Associate Professor
Discipline: Social and Behavioral Sciences
Specific Discipline: Social Work
Outcome Year: 2021
Outcome Category: No Longer Employed (includes Fired and Contract Non-renewal)
Specific Outcome: "Ohio State University's board of trustees has fired an associate professor following a sexual misconduct investigation."

"OIE made findings that he "violated the University's Sexual Misconduct Policy by engaging in unwelcome gender-based verbal and physical conduct that was so sufficiently severe, persistent, and pervasive it created a hostile educational environment with respect to two students; and conduct that constituted quid pro quo harassment with respect to a third student."

"Specifically, OIE determined that Professor Olate commented on students' physical appearances, described graphic details of sexual assault in a class lecture, commented on a student's sexuality, touched the shoulders and backs of female students, hugged and kissed one female student, and requested to have an intimate relationship with a student, who declined his advances.""
