Taking charge

Realized potential

‘Hypersexualized’ environment

Former OU students allege receiving inappropriate comments from the current school of drama director
The alleged sexual misconduct of University of Oklahoma (OU) emeritus professor and former donor John Scamehorn has garnered a lot of attention recently, but some former students are saying the university’s school of drama fostered an environment that might have been conducive for such harassment.

No Pax

Another path
