A former student has agreed to a 325-thousand dollar settlement with the University of Wisconsin System over a sexual harassment case.

The woman identified as A-R in court documents said she had a consensual relationship with art professor Michael Beitz in 2012. She told officials at U-W-Oshkosh Beitz began to sexually abuse and harassment when she tried to distance herself from him. It was determined he had violated system policies and he resigned in 2015.
