Statement on Lawsuit Against Dr. Dennis Kelly
CSUN learned Tuesday, Feb. 12, of a lawsuit against part-time Klotz Student Health Center Men’s Health Physician Dr. Dennis Kelly relating to his work at the University of Southern California. At this time, the university is not aware of any complaints against Dr. Kelly from any member of the CSUN community. The health and safety of our students is our top priority. We take the disturbing allegations by the former USC students, as well as any sexual assault, battery or harassment allegation against anyone at the university, seriously. CSUN is conducting its own investigation into Dr. Kelly’s work at the university. Out of an abundance of caution, while CSUN is investigating this matter, Dr. Kelly was placed on immediate administrative leave Tuesday. Anyone who has any concerns regarding interactions with Dr. Kelly is encouraged to contact CSUN’s Office of Equity and Diversity at or (818) 677-2077.
