IU Professor Resigns, Faces Sexual Harassment Allegations

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — A theatre professor at Indiana University has resigned as he faces sexual harassment allegations from alumni.

According to the Indiana Daily Student, IU’s student newspaper, Professor Murray McGibbon quit his job Friday.

Earlier this week, the newspaper reported four alumni came forward and told their stories, claiming McGibbon’s sexual misconduct dates back to 2008.

One of the women said when she auditioned for a play, McGibbon had the women line up in bikinis. Both of the male students said McGibbon gave them special roles in shows, invited them to his house, offered to take them on trips, and told them he loved them.

IU started a Title IX investigation into McGibbon last year, but he had been teaching three classes this semester.
