Dartmouth College is investigating allegations of “serious misconduct” involving three professors in the school’s psychological and brain sciences department. The professors – Todd Heatherton, Bill Kelley and Paul Whalen – are on paid leave.

“We are engaged in a thorough and impartial process that protects the rights of all parties and promotes the safety of our campus community," the college said in a statement.

Dartmouth has limited the professors’ access to campus pending the result of the investigation.

Emails to Kelley and Whalen were not returned.  Barry Shuster, an attorney who said he is authorized to speak for Heatherton, said Heatherton is cooperating with the college's investigation, but declined to comment further.
