The school says Katherine Lasher comes to the Office of Institutional Equity after holding a similar  post at Central Michigan University since 2013.  The office was first announced in August after the Sexual Civility and Empowerment unit was closed amid claimsome victims were told they were lying or fabricating their stories. Records also showed some SCE workers subjected victims to re-traumatizing treatment.
