Phi Theta Kappa is such an important organization to Texas community colleges that a disturbing development simply must be reported here.
The international community college honor society is investigating allegations by two female students that the group's longtime executive director, Rod Risley, sexually harassed them while they were traveling and attending conferences as officers.
One of the women is from Victoria College.
The allegations "have provoked letters of concern from presidents of the two community colleges the students attended, as well as court filings and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission complaints," according to a major article in Inside Higher Ed., by Ashley A. Smith.
You should definitely read the entire piece for details and context. Dr. Risley denies the allegations.
As is always the case in such matters, the parties are instructed by counsel not to comment publicly while the facts are explored. Official investigations have commenced.
