Exotic Dancers in Catholic Univ. Business Class

Students paid $150 each to attend a business symposium at LaSalle University, billed in advance as including strippers. The professor "teaching" the class was caught in the act by the dean of the business school, and was subsequently suspended.

Rappaport was in the front of the classroom and three bikini-clad and miniskirted women were on top of him giving him a lap dance, according to Brad Bernardino, a sophomore at La Salle who attended the March 21 session. At various other times, Bernardino added, the strippers gave willing students lap dances, and a PowerPoint presentation related to business ethics ran in the background.

Officials at La Salle University, a Catholic university in Philadelphia, said they were "very concerned" about the allegations and have "launched a full-scale investigation into what took place and who was responsible."

The 57-year-old Rappaport's seminar reportedly cost each student $150 to attend and earned the students extra credit in Rappaport's business class.

. . . The Philadelphia City Paper interviewed students, who said three dancers, dressed in bikinis or miniskirts and high heels, had already arrived when approximately 30 students (two of whom were female) entered the classroom. Our CBS affiliate reports that about 45 minutes in, the lecture was broken up by Paul Brazina, dean of the business school. . . .

On a popular site where college students rank their professors, some comments show insight into other lectures Rappaport has held before. One comment says, "Extremely strange man. loves gambling, horse racing and strip joints. talks about all of the above all the time. doesn't like to teach. smart man about stats. easy A."

. . . The symposium's subject, the students say, was the application of Platonic and Hegelian ethics to business.

The mere presence of these women was not entirely surprising, apparently, to Rappaport's students, who say that he regularly reminded his classes that the strippers had been booked. But "I was surprised they actually gave lap dances," said the same student. "I thought they were just there for effect, like he always said."

"Every student that went knew what they were getting themselves into," said another student.
