CU faculty upset over canceled class

BOULDER — Faculty members at the University of Colorado in Boulder have called an emergency meeting with a dean after a professor was ordered to stop teaching a course on deviant behavior because of her lecture on prostitution.

Faculty members are asking of Arts and Sciences dean Steven Leigh to review the decision on Wednesday.

CU Provost Russell Moore sent an email to students, faculty and staff saying sociology professor Patti Adler is being suspended from teaching the class because of complaints from students who did not want to participate in a role-playing skit. Students said they felt their grades would be affected if they did not participate.

According to the Boulder Daily Camera, Adler told students the skit on prostitution was seen as a risk to the university.
