The BBC reports that a former Cambridge University fellow who apologised after 10 students complained of “inappropriate sexual and sexist” behaviour has “withdrawn permanently” from his college.
Ex-Trinity Hall fellow Dr Peter Hutchinson stopped teaching in 2015 after an investigation and was to have no further contact with students.
The non-stipendiary fellow admitted commenting on female students’ appearance in his tutorials over several months in 2014 and 2015.
The former German lecturer stopped teaching in 2015 and was to have no contact with students following the investigation.
However, he remained at Trinity Hall in an advisory capacity in its investments committee, the university said. It has now confirmed Dr Hutchinson has left the college completely.
The university would not say who took the decision, or why it had been made.
Nor would it comment on reports in the local press that Dr Hutchinson had “breached the sanction placed on him in 2015, after attending social events where students were present”.
