A University of SC professor sued three times for sexual harassment will be allowed to teach online art classes this spring semester. This fall semester, he was on paid sabbatical without teaching any classes. What kind of punishment is either of these?

One of the three lawsuits was settled for $75,000. The other two are pending. Most businesses fire employees who are credibly charged with sexual harassment but the education sector seem to follow a different set of rules.

And besides that, what student would want to support him by taking one of his classes?

Originally, this professor was to teach 3 online art classes this spring but due to campus backlash, he will no longer be allowed to teach these classes. Good for you UofSC students for protesting this! Reply

Interesting that we've seen people fired from jobs for alleged crimes before even being found guilty. This individual was found guilty and gets to keep his job! There is something very wrong with this picture. I'm surprised the students haven't formed a protest or started a petition to have him fired. Reply

I agree, this is terrible, he should not have been paid and should not be allowed to teach online classes either. Reply

If any and all future classes are online then it should be okay since he won't have any physical contact with students' or staff at that college. Reply

He shouldn't have been paid while not teaching classes and perhaps the schools rationale is that since he'll be teaching online he at least wont be in direct contact with any students. Any verbal harassment can be easily documented on video tape. Agree that it seems like those working in government, including professors, get away with more bad behavior than in the private sector.
