From allegations of graduate school deans engaging in sexual misconduct to complaints of janitorial staff experiencing discriminatory treatment, PII has conducted investigations in academia at every level.
PII has expertise in working with the procedural rights of faculty, particularly at public institutions and in unionized environments. PII’s team of investigators has addressed a broad range of allegations involving faculty and staff at colleges, universities, local school districts and both public and private K-12 schools.
PII has investigated complaints that:
• A college botany professor was sexually harassing a female student, including sending her suggestive text messages and pressuring her to see him socially.
• A high school teacher was accessing a large amount of pornography on campus computers. Working with a computer forensics expert, PII concluded that the allegations were unfounded.
• A college basketball coach was accused of abusive conduct, bullying, and mishandling the care of an injured player.
• A female adjunct professor working in a male-dominated field was denied a full-time faculty position because of her gender and ethnicity.
