US college strips deceased professor of honours following allegations of bad behaviour

December 5, 2018

A US college has announced that it will remove the name of a late professor, Lester Mazor, from an on-campus room and an endowed fund in his memory after determining that allegations of inappropriate behaviour in the 1970s were "more likely than not" to be true. Inside Higher Ed states that the allegations were not the only ones to be brought forward against Mazor. In a statement, the college said that the case raises questions around how to deal with harassment allegations against a deceased person, and that part of an institution’s responsibility toward victims is to establish protocols around how such questions should be addressed. Inside Higher Ed (International)
