UT adviser fired after prior harassment comes to light

Lee Waldrep has been fired from his position as an academic adviser at UT Knoxville after the school discovered he sexually harassed women at his prior job at the University of Illinois. Waldrep had worked for UT’s College of Architecture and Design since March of this year, seven months after he resigned from his position at the University of Illinois. The UI investigation indicated there was truth to the claims of eight female students who said he engaged in unwanted touching and kissing, and photographed them without consent. Waldrep has denied those allegations.
