The university said band Director Jonathan Waters was dismissed on Thursday for failing to address the group's "sexualized culture," which a report said included a practice in underwear and rituals simulating sex acts. Waters and other staff, "knew or reasonably should have known about the culture but failed to eliminate the sexual harassment, prevent its recurrence, and address its effects," said a 92-page report released this week after an internal investigation. The task force review, to be led by former Ohio Attorney General Betty Montgomery, will be more far-reaching and will include nationally recognized experts, the university said.
