Victory for Ward Churchill or Reprieve?
Another stage in the University of Colorado’s long process of reviewing Ward Churchill is done — and his lawyer is claiming that it was a victory for the controversial professor. David Lane, Churchill’s lawyer, told Colorado reporters that the report was a “victory for Professor Churchill” in that there were not conclusive findings of wrongdoing. Lane told the reporters that the panel could not determine whether seven allegations were valid and asked that another panel review them — and the panel decided that two other charges did not deserve further investigation.
The allegations that are going forward for additional review, Lane said, involve charges of plagiarism or misrepresentation of work.
The university, citing confidentiality rules, is not commenting on the review by a faculty panel of a series of misconduct allegations against Churchill, who teaches ethnic studies at the Boulder campus. Likewise, Churchill’s lawyer is not releasing a report that Churchill received from a faculty panel Monday — so characterizations of the report’s findings cannot be confirmed.
