UC President Resigns
The president of the University of Colorado (where Ward “Little Eichmanns” Churchill continues to have a job) is resigning.
DENVER - University of Colorado President Elizabeth Hoffman announced Monday that she is resigning amid a football recruiting scandal and a national controversy over an activist professor who had compared victims of the Sept. 11 attacks to a Nazi.
Hoffman, who has been president for five years, told the Board of Regents in a letter that her resignation is effective June 30 or whenever the board names a successor.
“It appears to me it is in the university’s best interest that I remove the issue of my future from the debate so that nothing inhibits CU’s ability to successfully create the bright future it so deserves,” Hoffman wrote. …
In February, University of Colorado administrators (Feb. 3) took the first steps toward a possible dismissal of a professor who likened World Trade Center victims to a notorious Nazi.
A review of Ward Churchill’s speeches and writings is being conducted to determine if the professor overstepped his boundaries of academic freedom and whether that should be grounds for dismissal.
Hoffman said last week that Churchill would not be fired if the review turns up only inflammatory comments, not misconduct.
