UConn has placed a member of the faculty on leave while after learning of allegations of sexual misconduct against him.
The allegations against Robert Miller include misconduct involving children, according to UConn President Susan Herbst.
"Allegations involving crimes against children are both profoundly disturbing and heartbreaking," Herbst said in a release.
Miller is a professor in the Department of Music, according to the university.
A letter detailing accusations against Miller was written in December 2011, but only came to the attention of the dean of the School of Fine Arts in February 2013, according to the university. UConn police were contacted at that time.
After "multiple police investigations", an affidavit was filed in Rockville Superior Court in June, according to the university. Miller was placed on paid administrative leave and restricted from campus.
There have been no charges filed against Miller and the allegations appear to be unrelated to the University, Herbst said.
"Yet any accusation of sexual misconduct by faculty, staff, or students is among the gravest issues that any institution must face," Herbst said. "It is clear that serious accusations have been made, questions that demand answers have been raised, and we will do all we can to find the truth and protect the vulnerable."
UConn set up a website a detailing information about the ongoing investigation.
