BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) - A third student has accused a University of California at Berkeley assistant professor of sexual harassment.

KCBS reports (https://cbsloc.al/1r5sHwE ) Thursday that former undergraduate student Nicole Hemenway made allegations last month to the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing against assistant professor Blake Wentworth, as well as the university and the UC board of regents.

Graduate students Erin Bennett and Kathleen Gutierrez filed complaints against the same professor April 11. Wentworth didn’t respond to a voicemail left at the phone number listed on his university website.

UC Berkeley has faced multiple sexual harassment scandals in recent months, including a case involving an assistant men’s basketball coach and another involving former law school dean Sujit Choudhry.

UC Berkeley Chancellor Nicholas Dirks has appointed a committee to make recommendations for overhauling the campus’ sexual harassment investigation and discipline policies.
