Open Letter to the University of Rochester Board of Trustees

Regarding Sexual Harassment at the University of Rochester

We, the undersigned, are faculty members at colleges and universities. Central to our role as professors is interacting with students. Faculty members hold substantial power and sway over those who learn from them, work for them, and seek their counsel and advice in the pursuit of professional advancement. It is imperative that professors fully acknowledge and respect this imbalance of power, and do everything within their capacity to treat those whose futures they affect with fairness, sensibility, and constructive support. When professors fail to do so, it is the university’s responsibility to step in and ensure that all members of the campus community are protected.

We hereby express our profound disappointment with the administration of the University of Rochester (UR) in their response to the allegations of misconduct by Dr. Florian Jaeger in the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences at the UR. We are deeply concerned that President Seligman and his administration failed to adequately respond to claims of predatory and manipulative behavior until those claims were made public in an EEOC complaint. Instead of protecting individuals who came forward and enforcing the University’s values, the administration sought to diminish the reported events and created a hostile environment for the victims, their advocates, and many other members of the campus community.

The UR has abrogated its ultimate responsibility to protect and advance the interests of its most important constituency – its students – by supporting the predator and intimidating the victims and advocates in this case. We strenuously object to the UR’s treatment of our respected colleagues. We hope that the EEOC complaint will bring some sense of justice to all of those involved, and a change in both the culture and leadership of the university. In the present circumstances, we cannot in good conscience encourage our students to pursue educational or employment opportunities at the University of Rochester.  

We urge you, as UR Trustees, to think broadly and deeply about the kinds of changes you are committed to making, given the behavior that the UR administration has tolerated and its retaliatory responses to the attempts of faculty to protect their students. As members of the academy, we are committed to supporting our colleagues who are working to safeguard gender equality and civil rights at the UR, and we will continue to be active, strong, and persistent advocates against sexual harassment in all of its forms on our own campuses. We hope that you are committed to action in service of these values as well.
