Barrett petition update

Update: In 2015, Barrett professor Jacquie Scott Lynch took legal action against Sun Devils Against Sexual Assault founder Jasmine Lester to silence the organization. Dr. Lynch is still employed despite multiple sexual harassment complaints against her currently under federal investigation.

Since the launch of our petition last spring and the filing of our Title IX complaint over the summer, 3 more Barrett Honors professors are no longer on campus, bringing the total of sexual predators removed from Barrett to 5 (including Joel Hunter, Eric Susser and Dave Conz). There are still reported sexual predators employed by Barrett who are teaching freshman Human Event seminars and/or leading Study Abroad, including Dr. Jacquelyn Scott Lynch.

Male professors are not the only ones who abuse their power over students. The inappropriate relationship between Dr. Lynch and Lester began on a Barrett Study Abroad trip where Dr. Lynch encouraged Lester to drink and touched her inappropriately.

ASU decided there wasn’t enough evidence to prove Dr. Lynch sexually harassed Lester. Dr. Lynch continues to teach and lead Study Abroad trips at Barrett.

Tell ASU and Barrett Honors College to fire all of its sexual predators.
