IU Reveals 56 Sexual Misconduct Claims Against Employees
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Among the six campuses of Indiana University across the state, there were 56 reports of sexual misconduct among its employees reported to campus officials between July 2016 and June 2017.
According to Bloomington Herald-Times, 21 of the sexual misconduct claims were made on the IUPUI campus in Indianapolis, while 17 claims were made on the campus in Bloomington.
A total of 14 reports filed in Bloomington were regarded as sexual harassment or gender discrimination, while there were one claim each of stalking, exploitation and retaliation.
The numbers were released to the Herald-Times through a public records request.
While IU provides reports involving student claims of sexual misconduct, the university’s chief student welfare and Title IX officer says school administrators have yet to ask for reports against employees to be included in the report provided about student claims.
