Brown University Official Tied To Epstein Controversy Resigns

Brown University fundraising director Peter Cohen is resigning after a controversy over Jeffrey Epstein during Cohen's time at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Media Lab. Media reports, plus an investigation commissioned by MIT, found that the Media Lab accepted donations from Epstein and listed them as anonymous to avoid public scrutiny, during a time when Cohen was the director of development for the lab. Cohen was put on leave from his Brown job last year after those allegations came to light. A university spokesperson said in an email to The Providence Journal that Cohen resigned on Tuesday.
