Fire Lawrence Krauss for decades of sexual misconduct

Arizona State University professor Lawrence Krauss has been accused of verbally and physically sexually harassing undergraduate students and colleagues at ASU and other institutions for over a decade, according to Buzzfeed News.

ASU hired Dr. Krauss in 2008 after he was banned from his previous institution for sexually harassing an undergraduate student. It is difficult to believe ASU was unaware of his history when they hired him, especially given ASU's tendency to protect professors who sexually harass students (read more). 

In response to media attention, ASU has "initiated a review in an attempt to discern the facts." More than 50 witnesses and victims have come forward, and peer institutions have barred Dr. Krauss from their campuses. If Dr. Krauss is a danger to students at Case Western and other institutions that have placed him on a "do-not-invite list," he is a danger to students at ASU.

We call upon Arizona State University to fire and permanently ban Lawrence Krauss from campus immediately to protect the ASU community from sexual harassment.
