Churchill report given to faculty committee

BOULDER – A panel investigating allegations of plagiarism against University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill submitted its report to a faculty committee on Tuesday, but the findings won’t be made public until next week, a spokesman said.The Standing Committee on Research Misconduct could release the report on May 23 or later, university spokesman Barrie Hartman said. The standing committee will recommend to the chancellor whether Churchill should be cleared or dismissed or face some other discipline.Hartman said he did not know what the report said and that neither the Investigative Committee nor the standing committee would have any comment.Churchill, a tenured professor of ethnic studies, angered many people with an essay comparing some Sept. 11 victims to a Nazi. University officials determined he could not be fired for the comments but launched an investigation into the allegations about his research.
