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.VIOLATED SEXUAL HARASSMENT POLICY FOR SENDING EXPLICIT EMAILS TO STUDENT. (13) 2017 (harassment after 2011), William Gross Magee: Murray State University.
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.
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.

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.
