University of Vermont officials say they’ve removed the wife of President Dan Fogel from her volunteer job at the college amid a probe into her pursuit of a personal relationship with a university administrator.

The Burlington Free Press reports that the school’s Board of Trustees is probing any impact on operations as a result of Rachel Kahn-Fogel’s association with Michael Schultz, UVM’s associate vice president for development and alumni relations.

Citing a deposition in Schultz’ divorce case, the newspaper said Kahn-Fogel – a volunteer planner for development events at the Burlington university – sent personal letters to Schultz that his wife later found in his briefcase, unopened.

Fogel is stepping down next year, and says his wife wants it known she has long been in treatment for "serious mental health issues."
