U of King’s College releases final report on independent review into Hankey


The University of King’s College has officially released the final report on the independent review of accusations of sexual assault against the late Dr Wayne Hankey. The report authors summarized the history of accusations and investigations into Hankey’s behaviour and concluded that “Dr Hankey engaged in a pattern of predatory and abusive behaviour towards some young men” and exploited his position at King’s to do so. They noted that King’s response to information about Dr Hankey’s behaviour was “lacking” and “served to protect Dr Hankey.” In an address to the university community, U of King’s College President William Lahey formally apologised for the university’s failure to address Hankey’s behaviour in full, accepted the report’s findings and recommendations, and shared information about supports for community members.
