There is no evidence of sexual misconduct by former University of Tasmania head Peter Rathjen during his tenure in Tasmania.
Professor Rathjen was found guilty of sexual misconduct against two women at a University Adelaide function in April.
South Australian Independent Commissioner Against Corruption Bruce Lander released his findings of his investigation into Professor Rathjen's conduct on Wednesday. ICAC's investigation was sparked by a complaint made by two women in May.
After the investigation was launched both Professor Rathjen and Uni Adelaide chancellor Kevin Scarce resigned from their positions.

In a letter to staff sent on Wednesday afternoon, UTAS vice-chancellor Rufus Black said there was no evidence of misconduct committed by Professor Rathjen during his time there.
"When ICAC made public its investigation into Peter Rathjen's behaviour, despite it not involving our university, we undertook our own investigation and to date have determined that there was no known evidence of sexual harassment or sexual assault involving Professor Peter Rathjen during his tenure at the University of Tasmania," the letter read.
"I want to assure you there is no tolerance at our university for sexual harassment or sexual assault," Professor Black said in the letter.
"If there are unreported, undetected issues in Tasmania, we are ready to support anyone with experiences they want to share, knowing how difficult it can be to come forward."
Mr Lander released his findings via statement, and said he had decided to not make the full report public, out of respect to the two women and other people involved.
However, he said he "rejected Professor Rathjen's evidence in every respect" and had corroborated the complainants' version.

The investigation found at a university event in April, Professor Rathjen engaged in unwelcome and unwanted attention with two women.
The attention, which was found to be sexual in nature, including touching the women on the bottoms, hugging without consent and touching their waists while hugging.
It also found Professor Rathjen kissed one of the women on the mouth on two different occasions.
Mr Lander also criticised the process of reporting the complaint and advice given to the university by an independent solicitor, who had been engaged by the HR department.
He found the solicitor had advised the university to not report the complaint to the University Council, but the investigation found that it should have been reported.
Mr Lander said he would not make further comment and hoped his statement would not provide more hurt to the people involved.
