Lehigh professor resigns amid sexual misconduct allegations
Jacqueline Palochko Of The Morning Call
A Lehigh University faculty member has resigned amid an investigation that eventually found “sufficient cause” of sexual misconduct, according to a university email from the provost’s office.
The faculty member was identified as James Braxton Peterson, according to an email to faculty and staff sent today.
According to the email viewed by The Morning Call, Lehigh was made aware of allegations and other misconduct against Peterson on Nov. 7.
He was placed on leave and not permitted on campus, the email said.
An investigation by the university showed allegations of misconduct were made by “multiple individuals against Dr. Peterson,” according to the email.
After receiving the reports but prior to provost Patrick Farrell’s formal decision, Peterson informed the university he was unconditionally resigning his position immediately, the email said.
While Peterson’s resignation made disciplinary action moot, the email says Farrell, following his own review of the investigative findings, determined there was sufficient cause to initiate the process that could result in revocation of tenure and termination of employment.
