The Committee is investigating reports that a National Science Foundation (NSF), National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) grant recipient employed by Boston University has been accused of sexually harassing and assaulting female researchers. In light of supporting documentation from several other women reporting similar treatment and the highly competitive nature of government funding, the Committee is interested in understanding all the facts surrounding this case, what steps the University has undertaken to uncover the extent of the allegations and investigate their validity, and what safeguards the University has in place to address sexual assault and harassment cases.
