(BLOOMINGTON) - Guo Ping Wang, a senior lecturer at the Jacobs School of Music, has been fired for allegedly sexually assaulting a student on the Bloomington campus.

According to an Indiana University press release, the assault was reported on March 28. At that time officials immediately placed Wang on administrative leave.

IU's initial investigation included discussions with the accuser and others before the University decided to report the incident to the IU Police Department, who opened an investigation into the reported assault.

"Sexual assault has no place on our campus, or any campus, and any act of violence on the part of an employee against a student is especially egregious," IU Provost Lauren Robel said in the release. "The university intends to work with authorities to vigorously pursue this case to the fullest extent of the law."

Jacobs School of Music Dean Gwyn Richards also notified members of the school - students, faculty and staff - of the incident and firing today.

"This occurrence runs counter to our values," Richards said in the release. "We will continue to do everything we can to make sure that our students have the ideal environment in which to pursue their artistic and academic goals."
