Audit faults University of California sex misconduct process

SACRAMENTO, Calif. State auditor relieves the University of California for not addressing sexual misconduct complaints on time and do not discipline the faculty quickly.

Auditors examined how UC universities in Berkeley, Los Angeles and Davis dealt with complaints.

The report, released Thursday, found a number of people accused of such misconduct continued to sexually harass people after they have been disciplined ineffective.

They also found the UC-system is slower to discipline faculty, the staff and the three campuses often missed research deadlines without approval.

State auditor Elaine Howle says the university is aware of the problems with the complaint process and is working to address them, but needs to do more.

UC President Janet Napolitano says the system accepts the audit report recommendations and is working to improve the process.
