I would encourage grad students, particularly female grad students, to be wary of OU's English department in light of these allegations.  It looks like he is in the process of being fired, as the Inside Higher Ed article states: "Ohio has already moved to fire the tenured full professor and says its processes ensure that all complaints are 'investigated thoroughly and handled appropriately.'"  Nonetheless, a department that would allow this type of alleged conduct to go on for a decade is one to be leery of.  (I highly doubt they would be in the process of firing him had the allegations been found to be untrue in the subsequent investigation.)
