STORRS, Conn. (WTNH) — The University of Connecticut has started disciplinary proceedings against music professor Robert Miller and the dean of the Fine Arts program over misconduct allegations.
The move comes a day after an investigator’s report said that Miller engaged in misconduct with students, that there were sexual abuse allegations against Miller, and that some university officials knew of the allegations several years ago.

Fine Arts Dean David Woods is also named in the proceedings.
Here’s the statement from UConn:
“The governing collective bargaining agreement requires the University to follow a prescribed process. The first step in that process is to notify the employee of the recommended discipline and the reasons for that recommendation.
“Professors Miller and Woods were notified today that, based on the findings and conclusions in the Report of Special Counsel to the Special Committee for Investigation Regarding the Alleged Misconduct of Robert F. Miller, the University is commencing the disciplinary process and that the recommended discipline in each case is dismissal from University employment.”
Miller has not been charged with any crime.
