The president of Nichols College, Glenn Sulmasy, has taken a voluntary leave from his job amid an investigation into the U.S. Coast Guard Academy’s handling of a reported rape while Sulmasy was an administrator there.

“Nichols College recently became aware of information pertaining to President Glenn Sulmasy while at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy,” Nichols said in a statement. “In light of this information, the College has determined that it is in its best interest to engage an independent third party to further investigate.”

CNN reported in July on a secretive investigation by the Coast Guard Academy into allegations of rape made by a young female officer, prompting a public apology by the academy’s leaders.

Among the allegations in the CNN report were that the female officer had been discouraged by two lawyers for the academy from pursuing the rape allegations further and advised to focus on graduating instead. CNN identified Sulmasy as one of those lawyers but reported that both he and the other lawyer had disputed the accusation.
