List of sexual harassers in academia

Julie Libarkin has compiled a remarkable database of known sexual harassers in academia. Her criteria for inclusion are strict.

The database only includes cases in which there is “an institutional finding of some sort of sexual misconduct,” Libarkin said. She finds the cases in news reports and by combing through Freedom of Information Act results from media outlets, among other sources.

NOTE: I’d welcome discussion of the methodology used to assemble this list. I’ve always argued against trying to do something like this because I thought it was too hard to get it right.
