Northwestern Athletic Director Mike Polisky Resigns

Northwestern’s Athletic Director resigns amidst criticism over allegations in a sexual harassment lawsuit filed by a university cheerleader.

After mounting criticism by women faculty and a 400-person campus protest that included the Mayor of Evanston, Northwestern University’s recently named Athletic Director, Mike Polisky, has resigned. Polisky is one of four defendants named in an ongoing sexual harassment lawsuit filed in January by a Northwestern cheerleader.
