Beijing academic axed over claims


Beihang University on Thursday said in a statement on Weibo that an investigation found the professor, Chen Xiaowu (陳小武), had engaged in “sexual harassment behavior” that seriously violated professional ethics and the university’s code of conduct. Luo also accused Chen of harassing several other students. Instances of campus sexual harassment have surfaced regularly in recent years, but are usually reported in China’s state-run media as isolated cases rather than part of a wider systemic problem. In its statement, Beihang said Chen was removed as vice president of the university’s graduate school and that his credentials as a teacher and post-graduate supervisor were revoked. The response from Beihang was clear and swift and represented progress, women’s rights activist Zhang Leilei (張累累) said.
