State to Investigate Sexual Harassment in Cal State System

June 29, 2022

California’s state auditor will investigate how the California State University system and three of its campuses handled sexual harassment complaints, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The investigation follows scandals in which senior officials are alleged to have ignored or done too little about harassment.

Member of the Joint Legislative Audit Committee cited Los Angeles Times investigations that uncovered inconsistencies in how sexual harassment is handled in the 23-campus system and detailed millions of dollars in payments to system leaders, some of whom resigned amid sexual harassment controversies.

The system campuses that will be investigated are San José State University, Sonoma State University and California State University, Fresno.
