EEOC Complaint Against Binghamton University References Ombuds

According to the NY Times, a fundraiser for Binghamton University has complained to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission over “egregious acts of sexual misconduct” by two senior athletic department officials. Elizabeth Williamson, a major gifts officer for Binghamton athletics, said she was marginalized in her role after reporting the situation to university officials a month ago. “I saw a couple of top administrators, an ombudsman, a union representative, and they said: ‘I’ve seen people go through this before. It’s athletics. It doesn’t end well,’ ” Williams said. (NY Times.)
