University of California to Overhaul Sex Harassment Reviews

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, March 15, 2016

The president of the University of California system ordered a new process for reviewing sexual harassment claims against administrators after UC Berkeley faced a backlash over how it handled allegations against the dean of its law school.

Sujit Choudhry resigned Thursday after his former executive assistant alleged in a lawsuit that her boss received only a temporary pay cut and orders to undergo counseling as punishment following a campus investigation that substantiated her claims that he repeatedly kissed and touched her.

University leaders must make sure that substantiated cases of sexual misconduct be dealt with "firmly, fairly and expeditiously and that appropriate sanctions are imposed that recognize the serious nature of these claims," University of California President Janet Napolitano said Friday in a letter to the system's 10 chancellors.
