“An external review of the University of Toronto’s faculty of music—triggered last year by an open letter alleging misogyny and systemic inequalities—has found many students, faculty and staff reported experiencing sexual harassment or racial discrimination, according to a summary released Tuesday,” writes Jill Mahoney in Wednesday’s (5/25) Globe and Mail (Canada). “The review of the faculty of music’s climate and culture was commissioned by Dean Ellie Hisama shortly after she took over as dean of music last summer…. An online survey circulated to students, alumni, faculty and staff last fall…. Participants in the review said the … power imbalance between professors and students and the amount of time they spend together in private lessons ‘places students in a vulnerable position and can contribute to sexual misconduct,’ the report says…. The report makes a series of recommendations, including … protocols ‘to lessen the isolation of students in one-on-one lessons,’ such as installing windows on practice room doors and encouraging instructors to record sessions with students. It also urges faculty-specific training on sexual harassment and equity, diversity and inclusion…. The U of T said … work is already under way to improve conditions in the faculty of music.”
