Boston U Terminates Geologist in Harassment Case

Boston University terminated David Marchant, professor of earth and environment, administrators announced Friday. The university said in November that it intended to dismiss Marchant, based on a lengthy investigation that found evidence he harassed a former graduate student (who is now a professor elsewhere) during a 1999 research trip to Antarctica. BU’s Board of Trustees voted unanimously last week to uphold that recommendation. Marchant, who was previously demoted from department chair and put on administrative leave, has not commented publicly on the case.
