Possibly.... universities are famous for trying to cover things up.
I was thinking kind of along those lines. Maybe not covering things up, but handling it “internally,” making people attend classes, revoking access, that kind of thing. You have the Penn State situation - revoke access, Rutgers - attend sensitivity training, and here - revoke access.
This circling the wagons around people put into positions of authority happens all over, even in private industry. We promote someone to management; if they aren’t suited for that role, we will do everything in our power to discredit their accusers, otherwise we have to accept responsibility for a bad decision.
