How many more complaints were quietly hidden by universities?How many more were never reported because, let’s be honest here, what’s the point if the crimes are barely punished and people are hired elsewhere anyway?Specifically, these are cases involving faculty and administrators engaging in sexual harassment, sexual assault, sexual misconduct, stalking, violations of dating policies, violations of campus pornography policies, and similar violations, and where: The year listed below refers to the year in which the sexual harassment occurred, in which it was publicized, there was a university or legal finding of fact, or there was an admission of fact by the accused.
Recent stories about sexual harassment, sexual assault, sexual misconduct, stalking, violations of dating policies, violations of campus pornography policies, and similar violations in academia are NOT A FLUKE!
I decided to organize these by discipline and to include both faculty and administrators.
Recent reports are easier to find, but notice how these stretch back in 1981.
And these are just the cases we heard about through the media.
