A tenured professor at Syracuse University was fired because he had a consensual relationship with an undergraduate female, according to The Syracuse Post-Standard.

The Post-Standard reports:

The faculty member, who SU has not identified, taught, advised and supervised the student during the relationship.

It is the first time in decades a tenured professor at SU has been terminated through this process.

The dismissal is effective today and was announced by Chancellor Kent Syverud in his weekly email to the campus community.
