URBANA, IL -(Effingham Radio)- University leaders in Champaign-Urbana are wondering if #MeToo is driving an uptick in sexual harassment reports.
“The News-Gazette” in Champaign reported yesterday that the U of I has seen a dramatic increase in the number of harassment reports over the past two years.
In 2014, the paper says the school saw 26 reports of harassment against university workers or faculty members.
That jumped to 51 in both 2016 and 2017.
Most reports never lead to an investigation or charges.
In fact of the 102 reports, only 18 ended with the finding of a violation.
