BOSTON (AP) — A prestigious music school in Boston will hold a campus forum following a newspaper investigation that found the college allowed three professors to quietly leave the school after students complained the men had sexually harassed or assaulted them.

The Boston Globe reports Berklee College of Music President Roger Brown says he has suspended his annual state of the school speech Monday to hold a forum on sexual harassment and assault.

Students walked out of classes Monday to protest the alleged assaults.

The investigation found several students reported being assaulted, groped or pressured into sex with teachers.

One teacher was fired shortly after a student reported the man had groped her in 2012. But the newspaper found he went on to teach at other schools, including the New England Conservatory.
