Computer chief, chemistry prof quit UT amid sexual misconduct inquiries

When Jay Boisseau abruptly resigned in 2014 after 12 years of building the University of Texasí supercomputing center into an international powerhouse, school officials gave no reason for his departure.

The university made no public announcement when Bradley J. Holliday, a tenured chemistry professor, quit in 2016.

Records obtained by the American-Statesman under the Texas Public Information Act show that both men stepped down shortly after UT officials informed them that they had been accused of sexual misconduct. In the case of Boisseau, the university paid his accuser, a subordinate at UTís Texas Advanced Computing Center, $325,000 to settle her claims.

Higher education hasnít been immune from the national reckoning over sexual misconduct that has embroiled figures in Hollywood, the media, Congress and other spheres of American life. Allegations of misconduct by faculty members or administrators have surfaced at numerous colleges and universities, including the University of Virginia, Boston University, the University of Rochester, Stanford University, Columbia University and Dartmouth College.
