A Harvard University government professor announced his retirement Tuesday amid allegations of sexual misconduct from 18 different women.
Jorge Domínguez was put on administrative leave “pending a full and fair review of the facts and circumstances regarding allegations that have come to light,” after a report from The Chronicle of Higher Education was published on February 27th, 2018, exposing his inappropriate behaviors spanning decades.
The most prominent, was a report in 1983. Terry Karl, a junior professor, spoke out about the sexual harassment she endured while working with Domínguez. According to the report, Karl described one particular incident in a letter to the dean where Dominquez told her “this would be a nice place for a rape” while the two were walking through campus. After a review, the institution found him guilty of “serious misconduct,” but it was Karl who eventually left the university to escape his advances.
“It was not just uncomfortable. It was untenable. It was prolonged, quid-pro-quo sexual harassment,” Karl told CNN on Tuesday. Karl is now a professor at Stanford University.
The meeting followed reports that Government Professor Jorge I. Dominguez had sexually harassed at least 10 women across the past 30 years. https://t.co/IxtfNTC2RI
