As Students Protest, Berklee Says 11 Faculty Members Have Been Fired For Sexual Misconduct Since 2004

Dozens of Berklee College of Music students walked slowly down Boylston Street Monday afternoon in a silent protest calling out what they say is the school’s failure to uphold its “zero tolerance” policy on sexual harassment.

The protest, which lasted less than a half hour, was held in response to a recent Boston Globe report detailing accounts by multiple students accusing former Berklee professors of sexual misconduct, including a student who said one of the professors groped her while she was intoxicated.

The protesters made their way into a forum school officials were holding in the wake of the reports, where Berklee President Roger Brown addressed an audience that nearly filled the inside the school’s performance center auditorium. He began his remarks with an apology.
