The University of Vermont has confirmed it’s investigating whether a relationship between the wife of President Dan Fogel and a vice president of development and alumni affairs violated university rules.
A court transcript and emails made public by UVM in response to a public-records request indicate Rachel Kahn-Fogel sent suggestive messages to UVM Vice President Michael Schultz.
The court transcript says Schultz told his now-estranged wife that he and Kahn-Fogel had exchanged expressions of love but were not sexually involved.
Dan Fogel, meanwhile, issued a statement saying his wife was struggling with "serious mental health issues."
UVM officials say they want to make sure no campus rules were broken, and that no money was improperly spent.
