GRCC art professor Fillipo Tagliatti, who was placed on administrative leave in early November, is being investigated for alleged violations of the school’s sexual harassment policy.
According to documents obtained by The Collegiate through a Freedom of Information Act request, Tagliatti was placed “on paid administrative leave pending an investigation into alleged violations of the College’s Title IX Sexual Harassment Policy”. Tagliatti will receive bi-weekly payments of $3,886.73 for the duration of the investigation.
On November 9, The Collegiate reported that students had arrived the previous day to find Associate Dean of Liberal Arts, Grant Snider, who let them know Professor Tagliatti would not be available to teach their class for the remainder of the semester.
No additional information regarding the details of the investigation were given. GRCC General Counsel Brett Meyer offered no comment on the situation and Title IX Coordinator Victoria Kane, as well as Tagliatti could not be reached for comment.
