Professor Resigns After Admitting to Sex With Student

January 9, 2015

An instructor at a Nova Scotia university resigned his position Thursday after admitting to having had a sexual relationship with a student he met during an online course, MetroNews reported. Michael Kydd, who teaches business part time at Mount Saint Vincent University, in Halifax, acknowledged at a news conference that the relationship -- which he described as consensual -- violated the university's code of conduct. He said he met the 38-year-old student while teaching a distance education course. Kydd said he was separated from his wife at the time, but called the relationship a "serious error in judgment."
