The Large Loss Report 2017 summarizes major damage awards and settlements of $250,000 or more that affected schools, colleges, and universities in 2016. The cases include a record $950,000 jury award in a Title IX sexual assault report case and a $10.5 million settlement for a student who suffered a traumatic brain injury when he was attacked at a pep rally. These descriptions are drawn from published accounts, and most do not involve United Educators (UE) members. However, they reflect recent trends UE has seen among its claims. Complaints involved sexual abuse and assault, harassment, hazing, discrimination, and contracts. Most of these claims affected public institutions, but similar incidents could lead to financial losses and reputational damage for independent schools, and private colleges and universities.
