Oregon State University examiner to resign after sexual harassment allegations

A University of Oregon college administrator has resigned after a female college student accused him of sexual harassment, according to a statement from the university.

The university released a statement late Monday saying it has suspended William W. Gaskin, a former administrator, for “indefensible conduct,” including “sexual harassment, assault, intimidation, and retaliation against a female employee.”

Gaskin was hired in 2014 by the university to run a faculty-wide training program for college administrators.

His departure comes just days after the school issued a formal apology to the female student, saying it had not acted quickly enough to respond to her allegations of sexual assault and retaliation.

Gaskins resignation comes just weeks after the college issued a full apology to her, saying in a statement that it had “deeply regretted the actions and failed to respond appropriately.”
