An affair with a subordinate has been discovered. The board of regents cited his “inappropriate” tone and language as a reason for dismissal.

Following an anonymous claim that he was having an affair with a subordinate, the University of Michigan Board of Regents dismissed Dr. Mark Schlissel, the university’s president.

“As you are aware, an anonymous complaint was filed alleging a sexual relationship between you and a subordinate. According to an inquiry, your interactions with the employee were in disagreement with promoting the University of Michigan’s reputation and stature.”

“In your July 1, 2021 conversation with the subordinate, you utilized your University of Michigan email. In this correspondence, she claims her heart is aching, to which you reply that ‘mine too.’ You claim responsibility for it and say that you are also ‘in pain.’ ‘I still wish I were strong enough to

On January 9, 2021, you responded to a message from the subordinate’s official University of Michigan e-mail address. The subordinate had written: “Oh yes!” In your response, you wrote: “It makes me happy when you say that.” You made a similar remark in an email dated April 25, 2020.

You can also ask another way: “Did you notice that I used the word ‘sexier’ to describe [name] on September 1, 2021?”

The documents “demonstrate that you were communicating with a subordinate through the University of Michigan email system in an impolite tone and language,” according to a letter sent to Schlissel. “They also reveal that you utilized official University of Michigan business as a pretext for maintaining and pursuing a personal connection with the subordinate.”

He was required to surrender all of his presidential assets and leave the presidential mansion within 30 days.

Around the same time, Schlissel announced that he would retire as president at the conclusion of his term in June 2023, a year earlier than previously planned. Schlissel’s announcement came little more than a year after faculty members narrowly voted no confidence in his leadership and amid recent conflicts between him and professors, as well as the university’s Board

The regents commented, “In the interest of total public disclosure, we have made available Dr. Schlissel’s numerous communications that demonstrate this unethical behavior as well as the letter we sent to Dr. Schlissel indicating our decision. All of this information is accessible via the university’s website.”

A former president of Michigan, Susan D. Coleman, will take over as interim leader. She was previously the president of the Association of American Universities.

“While disappointed by the circumstances, I am honored to be asked to once again work for the University of Michigan,” Coleman said in a statement.

“I’m delighted to be returning to the University of Michigan in this important interim capacity,” says Mark Schlissel, who served as university president from 2014 until 2018. “Serving this great institution was the most gratifying experience of my professional life,” he adds. “I’m looking forward to it.

In November 2020, the university agreed to pay $9.25 million in damages to eight female students who had been harassed by Martin Philbert, a former provost, during his ten-year tenure.

In January 2020, the University of Michigan relieved Philbert of his position after an outside investigation found that he’d harassed women for two decades, beginning as an assistant professor.

While he was dean of the School of Public Health, prior to becoming provost, Philbert had sexual relationships with at least three staff members, utilizing university offices to do so and keeping explicit photographs on his university-owned devices, according to Michigan’s investigation.

According to the investigation, provost Philbert was having simultaneous sexual relationships with at least two university employees during his tenure as provost. According to the inquiry, some university officials were aware of Philbert’s conduct but did not investigate it formally.
