Central Connecticut Releases Misconduct Report

October 17, 2019

In at least 10 cases spanning the last decade, Central Connecticut State University determined that faculty or staff members had violated its policies against sexual misconduct, the Hartford Courant reported. Only one professor remains employed at the university, as he appeals his case. The newspaper cited a report commissioned by the university and issued by Sibson Consulting that found that a “historic lack of action to address cultural and behavioral issues has contributed to a culture of diminished trust, where significant issues remain unaddressed or ignored.” The report also criticized the university for “lengthy and cumbersome processes and a lack of sufficient resolution of issues.” Zulma R. Toro, university president, reportedly said that the campus is “changing the culture” to "cultivate a healthy, safe and inclusive campus environment.''
