Howard D'Abrera

Adjunct statistics professor

OPHD found Howard D’abrera's repeatedly emailed a student with invitations to Hawaii and other destinations, mentioning orgies and threatening to lower the student's grade if they did not accept the invitation. Though D'abrera denies any sexual intent to his emails and communications, OPHD found D'abrera had more likely than not violated UC sexual harassment policy. He was placed on administrative leave the day the complaint was filed and later resigned in January.
