A professor in the University of Colorado at Boulder’s philosophy department who was suspended without pay in 2013 has retired, the Daily Camera reports. Robert Hanna, who was one of several professors disciplined as claims of sexual harassment in the department swirled, was accused of sending sexually explicit emails to a female faculty member and a graduate student.
Mr. Hanna declined to provide comment to the newspaper, but wrote a blog post in October criticizing the university’s sexual-harassment policies.
In the fall of 2013, an outside group released a report asserting that the department suffered from a culture of sexual harassment. The university responded by removing the department’s chairman and suspending graduate admissions, bold steps in a discipline often criticized for gender imbalances. The university announced in October that admissions would be reinstated for the 2015-16 academic year.
