AlgomaU part-time professor suspended following allegations of sexual assault against students


Algoma University has suspended a part-time professor from his duties at the institution and prohibited him from visiting the campus or contacting students after he was arrested and charged with sexual assault, reports CBC. A statement from the Sault Ste Marie Police Service explains that they began investigating complaints in December 2022 and that officers “developed grounds to believe that the accused victimised five people,” who Soo Today identified as AlgomaU students. “The University is working directly with those impacted to ensure appropriate support is available and are making those support services available to any faculty, staff or students who require them,” said AlgomaU in a statement.
