The verdict in the federal civil rights trial was issued in favor of Isaac Sanders, the former vice president of advancement at East Stroudsburg University.
The Pocono Record ( ) said Sanders' lawyer reported that he was elated and considers it the first step toward vindicating his reputation. Sanders was not in the courtroom when the verdict was announced.
"A lot of terrible, terrible things have been written about Dr. Sanders.
"Dr. Sanders, through the jury's verdict, has been vindicated, and a lot of people owe Dr. Sanders an apology."
Three former university students claimed Sanders offered them campus jobs and paid some of their tuition in order to groom them for sexual advances. They alleged he groped them, and one said Sanders forced the student to perform oral sex on several occasions.
Sanders testified he considered the allegation of forced oral sex "preposterous" and that he considered it disgusting to touch another man's genitals.
Sanders was never charged with a crime, but the school fired him in 2008. The lawsuit followed a year later.
The newspaper reported that the three plaintiffs were consoled after the verdict by friends outside the courtroom. They had alleged Sanders was a predator who targeted emotionally fragile young black men.

The accuser, who now works as a college coach, is among three former students who filed a civil rights lawsuit against Isaac Sanders. The lawsuit accuses Sanders of molestation or unwanted sexual touching while the plaintiffs were students at East Stroudsburg University.
Sanders, who worked as East Stroudsburg's vice president of advancement, was fired six years ago following an investigation by the agency that oversees Pennsylvania's state university system. He has consistently denied wrongdoing and has never been charged with a crime.
The man who says Sanders groped him told a jury in federal court Wednesday that he was raised in a city neighborhood where it wasn't acceptable to report crime. All three accusers and Sanders are black.
"It's not socially acceptable to report a murder, a burglary, any kind of crime in your neighborhood," said the man, adding he didn't agree with it.
Two other accusers testified earlier in the trial that Sanders used his high-powered job to offer them scholarships, gifts and campus jobs, then assaulted them.
One of the men told the jury that Sanders grabbed him by the head and forced him to give Sanders oral sex while they were in Sanders' SUV, and testified about several other acts of alleged forced oral sex.

The attorney general's office has credible evidence against Isaac Sanders, East Stroudsburg University's former vice president for advancement, but it has failed to launch a criminal probe while it is defending the university and its administrators from a civil lawsuit filed by the students, said their lawyer, Albert R. Murray Jr.
Dr. Sanders has been long awaiting his day in court, and I find these other stunts to be inappropriate," Coleman said.
Sanders, who had been the university's chief fundraiser since 2000, was fired by East Stroudsburg in October 2008 following an investigation by the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education.
The lawsuit said Sanders, who is black, targeted emotionally fragile young black men from broken homes who looked to Sanders as a father figure or mentor. He dangled scholarships and campus jobs, then either pressured students for sex or physically attacked them to commit sexual assaults, said the suit, which also alleged Sanders misappropriated university funds.
Sanders has held executive positions at Stillman College, Tuskegee University and Alabama State University and has conducted seminars around the country on higher education administration and fundraising.
Six students sued the school in 2009, but a federal judge dismissed three from the case because the statute of limitations had expired.
The judge recently dismissed claims that East Stroudsburg and its former president covered up the alleged assaults, but said there was enough evidence against Sanders for a jury to hear the case.

As the university's chief fund-raiser, Isaac Sanders led ESU's capital campaigns, including the most recent one that built the $40 million science and technology center, the university's biggest project since 1979.
Officials would only say Sanders' last day was Wednesday.
"I can't answer whether he resigned or was terminated," added Kenn Marshall, a spokesman for the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education. "All we can say is he is no longer employed by the university."
Marshall said there no monetary settlement between the university and Sanders as part of his departure.
Marshall Anders, the Stroudsburg attorney representing Sanders, said he had not had a chance to talk to his client and was unaware of why he left the university.
Sanders, 60, is being investigated by Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education in Harrisburg and by the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission, which involve a student's claims of misconduct against Sanders, officials said.
In addition to those probes, the university's foundation that Sanders headed as executive director has hired Concannon, Miller & Co., an Allentown accounting firm, to review the foundation's books and records.
Albert Murray Jr., a Monroe County lawyer and former federal prosecutor who is representing the student who filed the initial complaint, has said other students have surfaced with similar complaints against Sanders.
Sanders came to ESU in 2000 from Stillman College in Tuscaloosa, Ala., where he was vice president of advancement.
