Harvard prof. suspended for 2 yrs over unwelcome sexual conductRoland Fryer Jr., a celebrated Harvard University economics professor, will be suspended two years and see the research lab he oversees shut down permanently in response to multiple allegations of sexual harassment.

Harvard on Wednesday announced the unpaid administrative leave and a series of other sanctions – including the closing of the Education Innovation Laboratory or EdLabs, the site of many of the harassment allegations.

A review of formal allegations concluded that Fryer engaged in "unwelcome sexual conduct toward several individuals, resulting in the creation of a hostile work environment over the course of several years," wrote Claudine Gay, dean of the university's Faculty of Arts and Science (FAS), to the economics department.
