university of colorado to reinstate ward churchill
Contrary to the claims of the University of Colorado administration, the reinstatement of Ward Churchill to his professorship in the Ethnic Studies Department would be enormously beneficial to the Boulder campus.
Professor Churchill is an outstanding teacher. Several graduates of CU have told me that Churchill's courses were the most memorable and thought-provoking ones they ever had.
Current students have said they keenly desire to take his classes.
Contrary to the impressions one might get from the media, Professor Churchill is an original, prolific and highly influential scholar. He has developed a distinctive interpretation of Native American history and its relation to the travails of indigenous people in other parts of the globe.
Ward Churchill's presence on the CU campus encourages that critical discussion of controversial issues that should be the lifeblood of a serious university.
The claim that Churchill engaged in "repeated and flagrant academic misconduct" is entirely false.
