The Large Loss Report 2016 summarizes major damage awards and settlements of $250,000 or more that affected schools, colleges, and universities in 2015.

They include $20.5 million in a wrongful death lawsuit centered on an illegal bus stop, $4.85 million to a former university instructor in a discrimination lawsuit, $1.03 million to an athlete injured at a independent school, and $850,000 in a wrongful termination case against a community college.

These descriptions are drawn from published accounts, and most do not involve United Educators (UE) members. However, they do reflect trends UE has seen among its claims. Complaints involved bullying, hazing, harassment, employment, negligence, sexual abuse and assaults, and wrongful deaths. Most of these claims affected public institutions, but similar incidents could lead to financial losses and reputational damage for independent schools and private colleges and universities.
