The chancellor of the University of Wisconsin at Whitewater says Ward Churchill will be allowed to speak there next month. But he has set some strict conditions for the University of Colorado professor who likened September eleventh victims to a notorious Nazi.

Among the conditions are the university being sure it can guarantee the safety of the campus, visitors and Churchill for his March first speech at the campus 50 miles south of Milwaukee.

Chancellor Jack Miller also says no taxpayer money will be used to pay Churchill's honorarium or travel expenses. He says some of Churchill's comments are -- quote -- "grossly inappropriate." But Miller says he supports the professor's right to free speech.

Churchill was invited to Whitewater to speak on the topic of racism and American Indians.
