Professor resigns over the lack of action in alleged sexual misconduct

ROCHESTER, new york – A professor who was named one of Time magazine’s 2017 Persons of the Year has resigned from the University of Rochester about the university’s treatment of sexual harassment complaints.

The Rochester Democrat and chronicle reports that Celeste Kidd said in a resignation letter Thursday that they have to leave because the university never took action against Professor Florian Jaeger.

Kidd was one of the seven members of the faculty who filed a complaint against the university and the Jaeger. She was honored by Time as a “silence breaker” to combat sexual misconduct.

A series of reviews by the university cleared Jaeger of everything, but immaturity and bad judgment.

Jaeger is not called in anticipation of a federal lawsuit against the university.

The university released a statement saying it takes the safety of every member of our community” seriously.
