Berklee College of Music President Roger Brown said the school is "putting everything on the table" to address allegations of sexual misconduct by faculty.

In his first broadcast interview following The Boston Globe story last month detailing allegations against several teachers who were dismissed as a result, Brown said the school has put together a working group of students, faculty and staff to meet once a month for a year to discuss potential changes at Berklee. The school has also hired Title IX consultant Jody Shipper.

We discuss what changes Brown believes need to be made at Berklee to prevent and respond to sexual harassment and assault.

After the interview was recorded, but before it aired, the Globe published allegations that Eric Hewitt had been let go from the Boston Conservatory at Berklee over allegations of abusive behavior and sexual assault. Boston Conservatory merged with Berklee last year.
