Psychology professor resigned after being accused of sexual harrassment

December 11, 2017

Emanuele Castano was previously co-chair of the psychology department at The New School for Social Research (NSSR), but resigned in October amid a sexual misconduct investigation. He joined Stanford Medicine in November as a visiting professor. 

According to students at NSSR, Castano made lewd comments, rubbed students’ shoulders inappropriately and flirted frequently with female undergraduate and graduate students during class. A former graduate student of Castano’s also recalled feeling uncomfortable during class and described it as an “unprofessional” environment.  One student said, “Emanuele has always been known to be someone who has sex with students."

Castano's position at Staford has now been suspended while the university investigates.
