USC professor accused of luring students to Italy for sex is kicked out of class. The students say that is not enough.

After intense pressure from activists, the University of South Carolina reassigned a tenured art history professor accused of intimidating and sexually harassing students and faculty members for years.

“Professor David Voros will not be teaching classes at the University of South Carolina this spring,” USC spokesman Jeff Stensland said in a statement Tuesday. “Instead, he will be assigned to other duties outside of the classroom until further notice.”

The university did not take sexual harassment complaints like those against Voros seriously enough, according to the 2,280 students – and more – who signed an online petition demanding Voros’ dismissal.

Voros’ alleged behavior was first revealed in 2018, when a former graduate filed a lawsuit against him after a session abroad. In the court file, Allison Dunavant said Voros approached her during class about the “USC in Italy” program, saying that “her works would benefit greatly from visiting Italy and seeing pictures. works of art – like those of Titian and Michelangelo – in person. . “
