The University of Strathclyde have stated they will hold an inquiry in to the handling of complaints of sexual misconduct after a former professor, Mr O’Gorman, was convicted of sexual assaults against students at Edinburgh Sheriff Court last week. Mr O’Gorman was previously employed by the University and also Herriot Watt University.
The report to the police was made by Herriot Watt University after students complained. The professor was found guilty of assaults between 2006 and 2011 that occurred at the University of Strathclyde.  The university’s principal, Sir Jim McDonald said: “There are questions we must ask about our processes and procedures. The safety and wellbeing of our students is always our first priority, and I am determined that we will learn from this case.” Mr O’Gorman will be sentenced at Edinburgh Sheriff court next month.
