Following allegations of sexual harassment in the spring, Jeffrey Nock, a Tippie College of Business lecturer, is “no longer employed by the University of Iowa,” Jeneane Beck, the UI assistant vice president for External Relations, informed The Daily Iowan on Thursday.

Law-enforcement officials and witnesses at the Campus Recreation & Wellness Center reported that Nock had taken photographs of women while they exercised.

He was issued criminal trespassing and harassment warnings in April, according to an incident report. A harassment warning does not carry a legal consequence until it is violated, which can lead to harassment or other criminal charges.

Nock began teaching at the UI as an adjunct lecturer in 2012, and he was named a lecturer in 2014. Nock was also president and CEO of Goodwill of the Heartland from 2008-2012 but resigned because of a personnel issue.

UI community members gathered Aug. 30 outside the Pappajohn Business Building to protest Nock’s employment. He was not scheduled to teach classes this fall, though he was still employed at the time.
