Online petition calling for resignation of ill-reputed U of R professor

An online petition is calling for the resignation of a University of Rochester professor at the center of a harassment complaint.

Rochester, N.Y. (WHAM) - An online petition is calling for the resignation of a University of Rochester professor at the center of a harassment complaint.

A petition to remove Professor Florian Jaeger posted to Change.org has nearly 6,000 signatures.

In an EEOC complaint, 11 students and faculty accuse Jaeger of stalking, having sexual relations with students, and creating a hostile environment.

Students are also planning a protest at his lecture Wednesday.

In a statement released Monday, University of Rochester President Joel Seligman said the complaints were investigated and determined to be unfounded.

Those involved in the complaint are calling for a federal agency to step into the investigation.
