Richard A. Schneider

Professor of Orthopedic Surgery at UCSF School of Medicine

The complainant alleged that Richard Schneider and the female complainant had a sexual relationship that may have begun consensually, but a Title IX investigation found the complainant had reasonably determined that she had no choice but to continue the relationship or her career would be damaged. The relationship allegedly made the complainant feel isolated and created an intimidating and uncomfortable academic environment. The respondent was found to have violated the UC sexual harassent policy after these allegations were substantiated. The respondent's position was demoted from professor to associate professor. In the heavily redacted investigation documents, it is unclear whether Schneider confirmed or denied the allegations.
