    The facts are simple: Nine charges against Ward Churchill ranging from plagiarism and historical fabrication to ethnic fraud were considered by an inquiry subcommittee of CU's Standing Committee on Research Misconduct (SCRM). Of these, seven have been referred to an investigating committee for further investigation, which should eventually lead to recommendations to SCRM on Churchill's fate at CU. Only two of the allegations before the inquiry committee were not passed on for further investigation, one of which was a charge of ethnic fraud, which was more than likely the right thing to do. After all the effort we and others...

    University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill has two weeks to respond to a committee's recommendation that he undergo a full investigation for seven counts of alleged plagiarism and fabrication. The professor Tuesday called the status of the investigation against him "very encouraging," partly because two other claims — including an allegation that he falsified an American Indian identity — have been recommended for dismissal. But an expert on academic fraud said the case against Churchill sounds serious. "Any claims moving forward are serious because my sense of these proceedings is that you really make every effort to see the claim...

    University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill was awarded a 2.28 percent merit pay increase this week for work performed in 2004, a little less than his department's average recommended salary increase for professors. A statement released by CU said pay increases for Boulder campus faculty are approved by interim Chancellor Phil DiStefano and based on reviews and recommendations by committees at the department, school or college, and administrative levels. Churchill's increase was finalized Thursday. The average recommended increase for ethnic studies department faculty was 3.21 percent, according to the CU statement. "In 2004, Professor Churchill taught a higher number of...

    University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill's latest toxic remarks, this time condoning - if not encouraging - attacks on military officers, are beyond outrageous. "Conscientious objection removes a given piece of cannon fodder from the fray," Churchill said at an anti-military forum last week in Portland, Ore. "Fragging an officer has a much more impactful effect." Fragging is the killing or injuring of a military officer by a subordinate. How is it that CU can produce Nobel prize-winning research but still can't find a way to get Churchill off its payroll? Until he's removed as a tenured professor, double-digit tuition...

    Controversial University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill says he does not advocate "fragging" U.S. military officers in spite of how recent comments he made have been portrayed. Churchill, speaking at an anti- military forum in Portland, Ore., military remarks "Conscientious objection removes a given piece of the cannon fodder from the fray," he said. "Fragging an officer has a much more impactful effect." His remarks were posted Sunday on the Pirate Ballerina blog site, which carries mostly anti- Churchill content. On Wednesday, Fox News' Bill O'Reilly played a tape of the remarks. Reached at his home in Boulder County on...
  • Churchill's Report Card (Ward's performance slipping)

    CU-Boulder professor Ward Churchill might be off his game. Students in his Native American studies classes gave him lower marks last semester than in past years. His GPA: 2.88 In one class, "Topical Issues/ Native North America," 52 students gave Churchill an average of three Cs, two Bs as well as a D-plus for "accessibility." Students in his other two classes, "American Indians in Film" and "FBI on Pine Ridge" gave Churchill mostly As and Bs. The firebrand professor earned only As and Bs from fall 2002 through fall 2004. The grades, gathered through end-of-semester Faculty Course Questionnaires, are used...

     Did Ward Churchill use his office at the University of Colorado, Boulder, for political and personal purposes contrary to university policy and state law? This is the question posed by one of our sources, who points us to evidence that Churchill may have done just that. In 1986, Churchill had his office at the Willard Administration Center on the campus of CU in Boulder. He was not yet a professor; rather, he was involved in the American Indian Equal Opportunities Program. A scanned image available on the AIM website*, shows that at least one letter Churchill sent on Colorado American Indian Movement...

    A complaint by University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill alleging research misconduct and fraud against one of his academic critics will not be pursued by that professor's school. Churchill, whose own work is under review by CU's standing committee on research misconduct, filed a complaint earlier this week against Thomas Brown, a sociology professor at Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas. Brown is among the scholars who have accused Churchill of committing research misconduct by repeatedly writing - without factual basis - that the U.S. Army perpetrated genocide by deliberately spreading smallpox among the Mandan Indians in the Upper Missouri River...

    University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill, who has been accused of intimidating people who disagreed with him, has filed an academic-fraud complaint against one of the professors who accused him of misconduct. Churchill's complaint, alleging that Lamar University assistant sociology professor Thomas Brown committed research misconduct, arrived Tuesday. The complaint alleges misconduct in the research Thomas conducted to dispute Churchill's work. Churchill also called Lamar University's provost, the arts and sciences school dean and the chairman of the sociology department, saying he would file a complaint against Brown, said university spokesman Brian Sattler. Lamar is in Beaumont, Texas. "He was...
