U. of Rochester Report on Professor’s Alleged Harassment Gets Mixed Reviews

U. of Rochester Report on Professor’s Alleged Harassment Gets Mixed...

January 16, 2018

What should we make of a report saying that a University of Rochester professor’s behavior was inappropriate, unprofessional, and offensive, that he exhibited "gross lapses of judgment" in getting sexually involved with students, but that he didn’t violate any university policies in place at the time?  An investigation that spanned three and a half months and cost the university $4.5 million did little to quell the controversy surrounding the professor in question, T. Florian Jaeger, a tenured member of the department of brain and cognitive sciences.

Seligman Quits, Says UR's Interests 'Best Served with New Leadership'

Seligman Quits, Says UR's Interests 'Best Served with New Leadership'

January 12, 2018

University of Rochester President Joel Seligman announced his resignation Thursday, just hours after the release of a report on sexual misconduct on campus.  The news came late Thursday afternoon, just as his silence on the Mary Jo White report was becoming conspicuous. That report, which examined the university's response to sexual misconduct allegations in the Brain and Cognitive Sciences department, largely approved the role Seligman and his cabinet played in the affair.  His decision to resign, though, was made before the White report came out.
