Jeffrey Parsons, one of the university's highest-paid professors, who worked for constituent Hunter College, was a psychology professor who researched sex and drug use. Parsons is accused of using university funds in order to fuel the parties, where he is also alleged to have behaved in a sexually inappropriate manner.

Contact information for Parsons had been taken down from CUNY's website.
