BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - The University of Colorado’s philosophy department is again accepting outside applications for its graduate program after addressing issues of sexual harassment and bullying.

The Daily Camera (https://bit.ly/ZGgcdN ) reports that the department announced Wednesday that it would accept graduate applications for the 2015-2016 academic year. This year it only considered internal candidates after a review found that the department had problems with sexual harassment and uncivil behavior.

The university is moving to fire one professor who allegedly launched his own investigation into an alleged sexual assault involving two graduate students. The university paid the alleged victim $825,000 in August.

Since the review, linguistics chairman Andy Cowell was brought in to lead the department and faculty members and students have undergone training and held retreats to talk about discrimination and collegiality.
