A Message from Dean Sam Holland About the Alleged Misconduct by Lee Trull

SMU has no tolerance for sexual harassment, assault and discrimination.

We are writing to inform you about a situation involving a now former employee of Dallas Theater Center (DTC).

Former SMU students have alleged experiencing sexual harassment by Lee Trull while they were working in DTC productions. The alleged conduct by Trull is reprehensible, and he has been fired by DTC.

We are greatly dismayed and deeply saddened that former students and other professionals have been affected, and we are grateful to them for their courage in coming forward.
