In total, the university’s independent investigators have interviewed more than 200 former students and staff with information about Strauss.
Investigators from the law firm Perkins Coie LLP plan to interview more than 100 additional people and remain in regular communication with the Franklin County Prosecutor’s Office, Ohio State said in late July.

“We welcome the involvement and careful oversight of OCR and look forward to providing any information we can,” Gates Garrity-Rokous, OSU vice president and chief compliance officer said in a prepared statement. “We responded promptly and appropriately to the allegations received in April about Dr. Strauss. We are confident in the independence and thoroughness of the investigation we launched then as well as our ongoing commitment to transparency.”
In August 1996, Strauss established a private medical office in Columbus outside the university, where individuals have reported that additional acts of sexual misconduct occurred. Perkins Coie is also investigating whether, and to what extent, Strauss may have examined high school-aged students during his time at the university, according to Ohio State.
