They said they are "satisfied" to have reached the agreement with Dartmouth. The nine women, all current or former Dartmouth students, filed suit in November 2018 seeking $70 million in damages from the school for violating Title IX.

Three former professors -- Todd Heatherton, William Kelley and Paul Whalen -- were referenced in the lawsuit and accused of turning the school's Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences into a "21st Century Animal House," treating women as sex objects, groping and also coercing them into drinking.

The suit also accused Dartmouth of failing to create an environment free from gender-based discrimination, in violation of Title IX.
