A University of Colorado professor who compared some 9/11 victims to a Nazi could learn soon whether he can return to the classroom -- or whether the university will pursue sanctions.
University President Hank Brown received a report Tuesday from the faculty's Privilege and Tenure committee regarding its hearing on alleged research misconduct by ethnic studies professor Ward Churchill.
Brown has 15 business days in which he could reinstate Churchill, determine there are grounds for dismissal or recommend other sanctions.
There are still many more steps in the process if Brown recommends dismissal.
A faculty committee and an interim chancellor of the Boulder campus have recommended that Churchill be fired, not for his comments on September 11th but for what they say is research misconduct.
