SACRAMENTO — University of California President Janet Napolitano has ordered former UC-Berkeley School of Law dean Sujit Choudhry barred from campus for the rest of the semester following allegations that he sexually harassed his executive assistant for months.

In a letter to UC-Berkeley Chancellor Nicholas Dirks dated March 11, Napolitano also said that she expects him to launch disciplinary proceedings against Choudhry, who remains a tenured member of the faculty after he resigned as dean on Thursday. Napolitano told Dirks, too, to ensure that all senior leaders on campus, including deans and provosts, are up to date on their sexual harassment and sexual violence training and to make plans for all senior managers and administrators to receive additional, in-person training before the fall semester starts.
