Of Rochester's sexual misconduct probe, but president to resign

WIKIMEDIA, TOMWSULCEROn the heels of an investigation into sexual harassment complaints against a University of Rochester professor, the college's president, Joel Seligman, has elected to leave his post.

Seligman said in a statement that his 12 years as president have been his life's greatest honor, "motivated by a single overriding criterion: What is in the best interest of the University of Rochester?"

Wegman cited a list of Seligman's leadership accomplishments, including the completion of the University largest capital campaign, the establishment of 112 new endowed professorships, a 40 percent increase in student enrollment, an increase in student achievement scores, diversity, and worldwide enrollment, the construction of almost 30 major new facilities, and others.

White's 213-page final report, now available online, largely vindicates the university's initial 2016 investigation, concluding that it had acted in "good faith, impartially, professionally", and in accordance with its own policies.

In a joint complaint, at least four Rochester students alleged that the university didn't do enough to protect them from Jaeger, noting that the professor was promoted in the midst of an investigation into his behavior.

Numerous accusers have challenged Mary's conclusion that the university did not harass or undermine any of the accusing students.

On the flip side, you better sit back to see the biggest trend - or, put another way, whatever was overkill this particular year. The devices can show details about restaurants, launch a video chat over Google Duo and pull up images hosted on Google Photos.

The investigation concluded that Jaeger's conduct was "at times inappropriate, unprofessional and offensive, and may have been harmful to some students", but didn't find he did anything unlawful. "It is not acceptable to say people have behaved offensively and inappropriately to our students, but nobody did anything wrong". "Some former female graduate students have had to endure behaviours and inappropriate remarks they should not have had to endure", White said.

The university, some of its administrators, and the accused professor, T. Florian Jaeger, were the subjects of Equal Opportunity Employment Commission complaints last summer. The professors argue that this is a fatal flaw. She said she changed her course of research because of it.

She listed several recommendations, including prohibiting intimate relationships between faculty and students in the same department.

The nine complainants followed up with a federal lawsuit against the university, Seligman and the provost last month.

Science reports that Seligman chose to resign before he learned the conclusion of the report. "Ever better is what the University of Rochester is all about". "In fact, there is substantial case law the report ignores that strongly supports the idea that the university is absolutely liable for the hostile environment created by Jaeger's actions". "Your investigation is structurally unable to get evidence from the main actors in the stories you are trying to reconstruct", the complainants' lawyer, Ann Olivarius, wrote to White in November. "In our view, the University and all involved here now have a unique opportunity to make such amends as can be made, heal and work hard".
