U.S. New Hampshire state attorney general said Tuesday he had launched a probe into allegations of "serious sexual misconduct" by three Dartmouth College professors.

"Dartmouth College has pledged to work with this investigation to ensure the safety and well-being of all members of their community," state Attorney General Gordon MacDonald said.

Dartmouth College spokesperson Diana Lawrence confirmed on Oct. 25 that psychology and brain sciences professors Todd Heatherton, Bill Kelley and Paul Whalen had been accused of the misconduct and had been put on administrative leave and barred from entering the campus.

It is yet unclear what allegations were launched against the professors. Lawrence said that while the school takes the accusation seriously, no official findings have been produced.

Dartmouth College is a private research university founded in 1769 and a member of the prestigious Ivy League.
