I modify the list as new information is provided, including the removal of cases that no longer meet the criteria.(7) 2017: Department of Urban and Regional Planning, University of Wisconsin – Madison.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.UPDATED 3/2/17: Freedom of Information requests are resulting in the release of university investigative reports.I did, however, include Athletic Directors and people in similar administrative positions.Note that I left off of the list any cases involving accusations alone without investigation, resignation, admission, administrative action, legal activity, etc.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?
Finally, to avoid accusations of libel, I list only cases that meet the above criteria and for which a news report, court case, or copy of the institutional investigation is available.
