CSU assistant professor resigns amid sexual harassment allegation

Local News

COLUMBUS, Ga. — A spokesperson from Columbus State University says an assistant professor has resigned after he was accused of sexually harassing one of his female students.

University spokesman John Lester says the school has dropped the case against Dr. Kyle Christensen following his resignation. The young woman’s father filed the sexual harassment report with CSU police back in December.

“We’ve been in constant contact with the young woman involved in this incident. Obliviously that is one of our primary concerns and we will contact her again now that there’s some additional attention coming out of this,” Lester says when asked about the alleged victim. “She’s known what’s happened along every step of the way”

News 3 first reported this incident on March 9. It was the following day that Christensen was placed on administrative leave.
