Churchill Surrenders


Ward Churchill is set to become a former University of Colorado professor.

The University of Colorado said it will dismiss controversial Ward Churchill.

CU Interim Chancellor Phil DiStefano made his announcement Monday afternoon.

A committee found Churchill guilty of research misconduct and another panel recommended that he be fired because of "repeated and deliberate" infractions of scholarship rules.

While Churchill's "Little Eichmanns" controversy isn't cited as the reason for the firing (he wrote that almost five years ago), Reason's coverage of the issue has focused on the academic free speech issues it brought to the fore.
