"As a scholar, an award-winning teacher, and a supremely capable and compassionate administrator, Rich Feldman is respected and admired by students, faculty, and staff alike," Danny Wegman, Chair, University of Rochester Board of Trustees said in a statement. "The University could not ask for a better leader for this next chapter in the institution’s history."  

Seligman announced his resignation following the release of a report that looked into how the university and Seligman handled an investigation into a professor accused of sexual harassment.

In his interview with WXXI, Seligman said his decision came before the report, which mostly vindicated the university, was published.
