Students name Churchill their favorite professor
Friday, May 27, 2005

Students at the University of Colorado have overwhelmingly chosen Ward Churchill as their favorite professor but he won't be given the award because he is too controversial.

The alumni association, which oversees the Teaching Recognition Award, said Churchill won't be given his honor until a CU ethics committee completes a probe into his academic record and alleged Indian heritage. "We're not saying he did not win, we're simply not awarding it until his name has been cleared," alumni president Kent Zimmerman told The Denver Post.

The award comes with a $500 prize.
