Faculty Senate votes to censure accused Rochester professor

February 28, 2018

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) — The University of Rochester Faculty Senate has voted to censure a professor at the center of a sexual misconduct complaint.

A special investigative committee in January concluded that Florian Jaeger had not violated policy or law, but called his intimate relationships with students and other behavior unprofessional and offensive.

Jaeger’s lawyer, Steven Modica, released a statement following the censure vote Tuesday evening, calling it an alarming rush to judgment.

The University of Rochester declined to comment.

A federal lawsuit filed by Jaeger’s accusers against the university is pending.

Jaeger is on administrative leave.
