Churchill, university officials meet


DENVER ó Embattled University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill met with members of a peer review committee for about two hours Tuesday to personally respond to allegations of research misconduct and whether he misrepresented his American Indian heritage.

Churchill repeated to a subcommittee of the Standing Committee for Research Misconduct much of a 50-page written response he submitted last week denying the allegations, his attorney David Lane said.

Churchill did not return a message seeking comment, and the university and committee members said they would not comment on the confidential meeting.

The tenured ethnic studies professor has come under scrutiny on a wide range of issues over an essay he wrote that contained a comparison of some Sept. 11, 2001, victims to the Nazi bureaucrat Adolf Eichmann.

A panel headed by interim Chancellor Philip DiStefano concluded Churchillís comments were protected by free speech rights, but it directed the faculty committee to investigate allegations including plagiarism, misusing othersí work, and whether he misrepresented himself as an American Indian to help gain credibility.

The subcommittee was expected to determine by late June what warrants further investigation.
