U of R Professor who outed colleague resigns with scathing letter

A professor who was named one of Time magazine’s 2017 Persons of the Year for outing a colleague accused of sexual misconduct has resigned from the University of Rochester over the university’s handling of complaints against him.

Celeste Kidd said Friday that the university had not meaningfully responded to problems that she and several other faculty members raised in a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission last fall about T. Florian Jaeger, a professor of brain and cognitive sciences.


Jaeger was accused of flaunting sexual relationships with students, using uncomfortable sexual innuendo and holding off-site lab retreats that featured hot tubs and illegal drugs.
