Multiple anonymous complaints alleged that a male faculty member had flirted inappopriately with students and engaged in sexual displays of affection with another person while in front of students and in educational spaces. Additionally, the other person allegedly displayed aggressive behavior toward students supervised by the respondent. A Title IX investigation found that the respondent had also hosted inappropriate parties at his home, where students were present. Rumors of sexual relations with students were unconfirmed but did come up in interviews throughout the investigation. The respondent agreed to disciplinary actions: He could not accept new graduate students for three years, resigned from a leadership position by the end of 2015 and waived the right to challenge his employment termination in an administrative process.
