Cal State Details History of Harassment Complaints Against Campus Leaders

California State University released records last week pertaining to harassment allegations against seven CSU leaders at six different campuses. The records were released in response to public records requests that followed the resignation of Chancellor Joseph I. Castro in February. Castro was criticized for mishandling harassment allegations against a subordinate when he was president of Fresno State University.

According to EdSource, which is in possession of the records, they detail allegations of sexual harassment, verbal abuse, or other improprieties against various CSU faculty in positions of leadership. CSU campuses where the incidents occurred include Chico, Bakersfield, Fresno, Monterey, Sonoma State and others. You can read details of the allegations here

CSU spokesman Mike Uhlenkamp told EdSource that “the safety of students, employees and guests on the California State University campuses is always a top priority.” He added that “CSU has committed to strengthening the Title IX practices and policies across all 23 campuses and the chancellor’s office.”
