Rochester faculty to vote on sexual misconduct issue

January 23, 2018

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) — The University of Rochester Faculty Senate will vote on whether to censure a professor at the center of a sexual misconduct complaint that divided a prominent department and led the university president to resign.

WHEC says a meeting is scheduled Tuesday afternoon regarding Dr. Florian Jaeger.

An independent investigator found that while his actions may have been inappropriate, Jaeger did not sexually harass students or faculty according to university policy at the time.

The report said the school should have a clear policy about relationships between students and faculty and quick consequences for any wrong behavior.

Jaeger has said he could have shown more maturity when he arrived as a 31-year-old faculty member in 2007 and over time has improved.
