Review for Colorado University Professor Who Teaches Deviance Course

BOULDER, Colo. ― The University of Colorado’s Boulder Faculty Assembly has formed two committees to review the school’s treatment of tenured sociology professor Patti Adler.

Boulder Faculty Assembly chairman Paul Chinowsky says one committee formed Monday will investigate whether established university policies and procedures were followed, and the other to find out if new policies are needed.

Campus spokesman Bronson Hilliard tells the Boulder Daily Camera that the administration supports the reviews.

University officials ordered Adler to stop teaching the class in December following complaints about a role-playing skit for students that focused on prostitution.
