Jon Lender: State college makes deal with administrator who complained about the program director’s hug, kiss and harassment


Connecticut State Colleges & Universities (CSCU) paid $ 9,056 for an outside law firm to investigate and submit a page-and-a-half report on the existence of an “old boys club atmosphere” at Charter Oak State College, in response to a complaint from a victim of sexual harassment. (Only the first page is shown.) Attorney Sarah Skubas, of the Jackson Lewis law firm, wrote that she found “no substantiated evidence” of an “old boys club” atmosphere in her discussions with university employees. She wrote that employees spoke about other perceived issues, but left out some “details.” Instead of writing these details down, she spoke to a CSCU system manager. The note ends at the top of a second page as follows: “It is important to recognize that many of the issues identified have already been recognized by the College as part of a strategic plan process, with actions underway to remedy it, including training, 360-degree management review and other measures. Please contact me with any questions. “The one-page summary constitutes the entire written report received by the CSCU, a spokesperson for the system said.
