Panel studies harassment hearing
By GEORGEA KOVANIS
A top faculty board is expected to make a final decision by
next week, on a complaint filed by a University professor
charged with sexually harassing female students.
Chairman of the Senate Advisory Committee on University
Affairs (SACUA) Herbert Hildebrandt said the review is
finished, buta final decision can't be made without a few key
documents. Hildebrandt refused to discuss the nature of
THE BOARD is reviewing procedures by the University
tenure committee last October which made recommen-
dations on the professor's possible dismissal.
Under special guidelines of the Regents bylaws, which
outline the procedure for faculty dismissals, the accused
professor can appeal to SACUA if he or she objects to the way
the tenure committee carried out the hearings.
The board's recommendations will be sent to University
President Harold Shapiro and the Regents who will make the
final decision on the professor's dismissal.
HILDEBRANDT said he did not know exactly when the
board would make its final recommendation, but he said it
would be "soon." If SACUA determines that the tenure
committee violated the special procedures, Section 5.09 in the
Regents bylaws, the professor will receive a new hearing.

President Shapiro, will make a final recommendation to the
The board is not re-examining evidence presented to in the
hearings, Hildebrant said adding that they only review if the
procedures were properly carried out.
HILDEBRANDT would not speculate on the outcome and
several University administrators contacted by the Daily
yesterday would not comment on the case.
The nature of the harrassment charges and the name of the
} accused professor have not been made public.
The professor is one of three reported cases of sexual
harassment at the University this year. A review board in the
Rackham School of Graduate Studies took action against a
Medical School professor who harassed a graduate student.
This month, motions on a third case involving a former Un-
iversity supervisor at Mott Childrens' Hospital will be heard
in U.S. District Court. (See related story page 3.)
