Open Secret

Hosted ByLiza Anderson and Tinu Thomas

Sexual harassment is a problem at The University of Texas. Whispers of misconduct and abuse date back to the University’s founding, but until recently these rumors have remained under the surface. Housed across a massive campus, more than 500 departments form communities and networks completely separate from one another. In 2018, one case involving sexual harassment allegations against a professor in one of these insulated departments opened a window into a broken system, implicating the entire institution in the process.
