One year ago, the Chronicle of Higher Education published an article about sexual harassment allegations against Harvard Professor Jorge Domínguez. Subsequently, Harvard began investigating these allegations and placed Domínguez on administrative leave. The investigation is still underway. The Weatherhead Center shares the frustration of students and colleagues about the lack of forthcoming information and the pace of the investigation. As our initial statements say, WCFIA remains committed to promoting zero tolerance of sexual harassment or gendered disparity of treatment. We take these allegations seriously and continue to take action to ensure a safer environment while acknowledging the need to do more.
As always, we welcome your voice to this conversation. Please contact me or Executive Director Ted Gilman if you have any concerns, questions, or suggestions.
With my best,
