In his email to students, the dean addressed the sexual misconduct committed by a faculty member. In responding to the criticisms that the law school didn’t take any action, the dean pointed out that he put in restrictions against the professor. Unfortunately, it gave the impression that the dean knew about the sexual misconducts, but he didn’t immediately terminate the professor. He put in restrictions, but stayed quiet hoping the whole thing went away. If the women didn’t come forward and the media didn’t pick up the scoops, he wouldn’t have spoken up. I wonder who came up with this terrible communications strategy.
