Recent news 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 (Suggested Twitter hashtag: #SHAcademia).
I thought it might help to compile publicized sexual harassment and related stories in academia – there’s a whole bunch of other stories in industry, technology, media, and beyond.
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.
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?
Note that it isn’t only men who are harassers or women being harassed, although the majority of the cases below are of men engaging in a variety of violations of institutional policy relative to women.
I also didn’t include coaches working at universities – that’s a whole other can of worms.
