At least 20 sexual misconduct cases against Univ. of Calif. faculty over a 3-year span
SAN FRANCISCO – The University of California, one of the nation’s largest university systems, had 112 cases of sexual misconduct involving employees over a three-year period from January 2013 to April 2016 at nine campuses. The UC president’s office said faculty accounted for 25 percent of the cases. . . .

. . . And at UC Santa Cruz, a professor accused of sexually assaulting a female student after a wine-tasting trip resigned before he could be fired. The University of California later agreed to pay his accuser $1.15 million.
The cases, among a trove of confidential files released last week by UC officials, show that the same lack of transparency and lax discipline that critics complained about during a UC Berkeley sexual harassment scandal involving faculty last year also occurred at UC’s nine other campuses.
The Associated Press scoured hundreds of pages, many of which UC officials redacted in whole or in part citing privacy reasons. While the employees who were investigated included cafeteria workers and administrative employees, **the AP examined cases involving the most prominent figures on campuses: the faculty. **
The UC president’s office said faculty accounted for 25 percent of the 112 employees found to have violated sexual misconduct policies over the nearly three-year period but declined to specify those cases in particular. The AP was able to verify at least 20 of the cases involving faculty members . . .
The Catholic Church has taken a lot of heat from “enlightened” people like this (and I am not excusing or minimizing any issues that have occurred within the Church).
It will be interesting to see if the media gets as on board with stories like these, and also interesting to see how the California Universities handle this.
These types of scandals are always a shame.
It sounds like so far from what I can tell, it doesn’t appear that at least some of the California University administrators have been handling these problems and scandals very well.
We’ll see what happens (or doesn’t happen) with these University administrators.
(Sometimes the University administrators are part of the problem and not the solution as below in 2015 . . . . )

University of Minnesota athletic director Norwood Teague resigned Friday amid revelations that he sexually harassed two female university employees — inappropriately touching both at a university-sponsored event, and sending a slew of graphic texts to one.
Teague acknowledged his actions and expressed concern about his substance abuse in a text message sent to media members.
