Ward Churchill One Step Closer To Getting What He Deserves

PirateBallerina reports that CU's Standing Committee on Research Misconduct has made it's recommendations on how to discipline Ward Churchill. The full report is here. The gist is this, from the Executive Summary:

The Standing Committee did not reach, or seek, consensus with regard to disciplinary actions. Six of the voting members recommended dismissal from the University. Three members recommended suspension without pay; two of these recommended suspension for five years and one recommended suspension for two years.

That a solid majority recommend dismissal, and no one on the committee recommended exoneration, is a small but important step to restoring the academic credibility of American universities.

Churchill is typically defiant. That he persists in citing a paranoid fantasy as the reason for this investigation only justifies the committee's recommendation.
