Statement by Senator Lisa Baker Regarding Investigation of Sexual Harassment Allegations at East Stroudsburg University

Dallas – Senator Lisa Baker issued the following statement regarding the investigation of sexual harassment allegations at East Stroudsburg University:

“The allegations of extended misconduct and cover-up are serious and alarming. I am asking a lot of tough questions of the Chancellor and officials of the State System.

My expectation matches the public expectation – the investigation must take a more critical look at the actions of Mr. Sanders, it must determine whether the actions of the administrators at East Stroudsburg University were appropriate or not, and it must result in the creation of a policy that protects against harassment and provides a fair and effective avenue of complaint when misconduct occurs.

If the investigation proves insufficient in any of these respects, then we will pursue a legislative remedy.”
