    The University of Colorado has announced its decision to fire Ward Churchill, the man who has faked being Indian, produced erroneous scholarship, and even been accused of plagiarizing art. If CU-Boulder is willing to fess up to the fact that they paid a fraud $100,000 a year to hate America in the name of American Indians, why don’t they try hiring a real Indian who loves America? I have academic credentials and more years experience teaching at the college level than Churchill did before he was hired.   Of course, I would have to make a few demands: CU would have to...

    Chancellor's intent to terminate needs OK of Brown, regents; prof can file appeal The University of Colorado at Boulder's chancellor notified professor Ward Churchill on Monday that he intends to fire him, capping a 15-month investigation that began in the wake of Churchill's notorious essay comparing victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks to a Nazi. Churchill, who was found to have plagiarized, falsified and fabricated in his research, was relieved of his duties by interim chancellor Phil DiStefano, but he will stay on the CU payroll until the termination is final. The ethnic-studies professor has 10 days to...
  • Scholars say tenured professors are rarely fired

    The University of Colorado has fired two tenured professors in the history of the Boulder campus. And Ward Churchill, if dismissed, would be the first to be fired because of alleged research misconduct. Scholars say it's more common at universities that unpopular professors are squeezed out — or given early-retirement settlements — rather than fired. The protection of tenure can make outright job termination a costly and lengthy battle. Richard Berthold, a former University of New Mexico professor, retired two years after he was censured for telling his class on Sept. 11, 2001: "Anyone who blows up the Pentagon gets...

    U. of Colorado chancellor to cut Churchill By JUDITH KOHLER and DAN ELLIOTT, Associated Press Writers1 hour, 10 minutes ago The top official at the University of Colorado's flagship campus said Monday he intends to fire Ward Churchill, the professor who compared some World Trade Center victims to a Nazi and then landed in hot water over allegations of academic misconduct. Interim Chancellor Philip DiStefano said Churchill has 10 days to appeal his decision to a faculty committee. Churchill, a tenured professor of ethnic studies, has denied allegations of plagiarism and other misconduct and has said he would file suit...

    The interim chancellor of the University of Colorado at Boulder plans to announce at 2 p.m. today whether CU will fire ethnic studies professor Ward Churchill. A majority of professors on a university committee that investigates academic misconduct recommended two weeks ago that Churchill be fired for a "pattern of repeated, intentional misrepresentation." In a secret ballot, six committee members recommended dismissal and three recommended suspension without pay. Two of the three recommended a five-year suspension and one a two-year suspension. In a 20-page report, the committee agreed with a May investigative committee report that Churchill intentionally falsified his research,...

    THE PUEBLO CHIEFTAIN ^ | June 18, 2006
    WARD CHURCHILL, the ethnic studies professor notorious for defaming victims of the 9/11 attacks on America, should be fired by the University of Colorado for gross academic misconduct. That's the recommendation of CU's research misconduct committee - and we heartily concur. The committee agreed with an earlier investigative panel that Mr. Churchill intentionally falsified his research, plagiarized other people's work and was ghostwriter of articles he later cited as "outside" sources. Now that two academic peer groups have come to essentially the same conclusion, a final recommendation will be forwarded by the provost and a dean to interim CU-Boulder Chancellor...

    Since the investigative report released earlier this month on the Churchill affair, little has been heard from University of Colorado faculty. This is understandable, since the whole affair is such a quagmire, but still the silence is unfortunate, since no one is so well placed to judge the matter. I hope these remarks will provide some helpful context. A careful reading of the investigative report (available on CU's Web site) shows the committee to have discharged its duty with tremendous care for the many nuances of the case, scholarly and political. Ironically, however, the very care taken in the report,...

    Protests on college campuses are becoming more sophisticated and more often staged by conservative students. Some conservatives say activism is growing because of a national network reaching out to students who've felt too threatened in the past to speak up on liberal campuses. "The tides are turning on college campuses," said Jason Mattera, spokesman for the conservative Young America's Foundation in Herndon, Va. "Conservative students will not take liberal garbage anymore." At the University of Colorado at Boulder, student Republicans made national news by holding an anti-affirmative-action bake sale where the "suggested donation" for a cookie depended on the race...

Judging by the scathing report issued Monday by the state auditor's office, fiscal accountability was an alien concept in the University of Colorado football program. It's clear that fired head football coach Gary Barnett and his minions treated funds like a piggy bank, with little heed for university or state regulations on documenting expenditures.

"[Barnett] has agreed to step down as coach. We're pleased about the terms of the settlement, but we're disappointed we had to part ways." Rodman confirmed that Barnett will receive a $3 million settlement from the university. Barnett was scheduled to be paid $1,187,750 next season and would have been owed $1.6 million of a $2 million longevity bonus. The school has called a news conference for 8:30 p.m. ET...

By Kevin Flynn, Rocky Mountain News June 9, 2005 Eleven-year-old Joshua Tyner was hiding in a tree near his family's backwoods Georgia home when marauding Indians shot him and he fell dead to the ground. That's how the old family legend goes. So much for old family legends. Searching for a link: Ken Tyner, 64, of San Diego, is a distant relative of Ward Churchill. Tyner underwent DNA testing last year and found that his...

His attorney, David Lane, said a response of more than 50 pages, single-spaced, was delivered to a committee representative Monday afternoon. Lane said that Churchill answered each and every point on which his past scholarship and academic credentials have been challenged. "He responded to everything, including the absolutely unconstitutional inquiry...

    The University of Colorado made news again April 15. The Colorado Board of Regents appointed former conservative U.S. Sen. Hank Brown (R.-Colo.) the university's 21st president in the university's history. Throughout the state of Colorado there seemed to be collective sighing of relief. From the governor, the legislature, Colorado University Foundation, administration to the faculty, there is enthusiastic support for Brown's appointment. GOP Gov. Bill Owens said: "Sen. Brown is known throughout the nation -- and around the world -- for his keen intelligence, his strong leadership skills and his quiet common sense. As a United States senator, a university...

    Six weeks ago, a teacher named Phil Mitchell reluctantly spoke to me about his unjust and forced exit from the history staff at the University of Colorado after 21 years in the classroom. All the evidence, notwithstanding the tortured spin of CU and its defenders, was that Mitchell, a reliable and well-regarded instructor, was being "let go" because of conservative political and evangelical Christian beliefs. Mitchell, who by the time I spoke with him was exploring job opportunities in more hospitable environs, decided to come forward with his complaints about the lack of diversity that hampered any true ideological debate....

    DENVER (Reuters) - The University of Colorado named former U.S. Sen. Hank Brown as interim president on Friday, hoping to improve its image after controversies including sexual assault claims and a professor who compared victims of the World Trade Center attacks to a Nazi. Brown will take over the presidency of Colorado's flagship university on Aug. 1 on a temporary basis until a permanent replacement is found. He was president of the University of Northern Colorado from 1998 until 2002. "The essential elements we need to focus on are openness and accountability," Brown told reporters after being named to the...

    Unless he resigns of his own volition - perhaps to take a better offer from a school that places greater value on radical leftist celebrities of questionable scholarship and character - it now appears that the University of Colorado at Boulder will be saddled with Ward Churchill for at least another year or two. Such is the nature of the bureaucratic faculty-review process at CU, which slows justifiable due process to a snail's pace. I suspect this is by the faculty's self-serving design to discourage scrutiny and accountability of the omniscient professoriate. But that shouldn't deter us from turning the...

    Penn State Professor Sam Richards has never met an anti-American conspiracy theory he didn’t like. He makes sure his students don't dislike them either. Welcome to Richards’ Sociology class 119. If you’re looking for a persistent strain of Marxist ideology -- and crude caricatures of American society and foreign policy -- you’ve come to the right place. A website for Richards’ class features a cartoon starring Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. “Fred” asks, “What should we do tonight, Karl-the-Red?” “Karl” replies, “Let’s go to that new Wal-Mart, Fred!” Wal-Mart, which has become the world's largest retailer by cutting costs for...

    At this rate, it'll have to be a retroactive decision. By the time CU fires Ward Churchill, Colorado's infamous professor will have retired with a dozen additional tomes on American imperialism under his belt. "My Life in Nazi America: How to live on a $95K and still be oppressed." That's if CU ever fires him. Which seems highly unlikely. But wherever you fall on this issue, you have to hand it to the university. Who knew academics were this adept at politics? They must be churning out media consultants by the hundreds. For a lesson, students needed only to watch...
