Harvard said that they would not renew Professor Ronald S. Sullivan Jr. and his wife, Stephanie Robinson, positions as faculty deans of Winthrop House, a dorm for undergraduate student after student protest
Why were students upset? Because Sullivan is not only a law professor, he’s a defense attorney and he joined the defense team for Harvey Weinstein, who is accused of rape and sexual assault and is the poster boy for the #metoo movement. Students said Sullivan’s defense of Weinstein made him unqualified for a supportive dean role. Students held protests and anti-Sullivan graffiti appeared.
