Report On Professor Ward Churchill Presented To Media
May 16, 2006

MEDIA ADVISORY

The findings of a University of Colorado at Boulder investigative committee charged with reviewing allegations of research misconduct against ethnic studies Professor Ward Churchill will be presented today in a news conference.

The news conference will be at 2:30 p.m. in the Coors Events/Conference Center, Room 4, on the CU-Boulder campus. The report will be posted on the News Center Web site beginning at noon MDT at www.colorado.edu/news/reports/churchill/. Copies of the report also will be available to media at the news conference. Between 4-5 p.m. MDT an MP3 audio recording of the news conference will be posted on the same Web page as the report.

Law Professor Mimi Wesson, chair of the investigative committee, will explain the research misconduct process and the next steps in the process as well as answer questions.

The investigative committee report, which was forwarded to the Standing Committee on Research Misconduct May 9, covers allegations of plagiarism and misrepresentation of factual information. The seven allegations referred for review included "alleged instances of plagiarism, misuse of others' work, falsification and fabrication of authority."

The Standing Committee has accepted the investigative committee findings. The report was delivered this morning to both Interim Chancellor Phil DiStefano and Professor Churchill. The Standing Committee will make recommendations to the Arts and Sciences Dean and the Provost.

The investigative committee was formed last fall after the Standing Committee on Research Misconduct announced in September that seven of the nine allegations filed against Professor Churchill warranted a full investigation. The investigative committee began meeting Jan. 11.

Parking for TV live trucks is available in the parking lot on the north side of the Coors Events/Conference Center. For additional background go to the Web site at www.colorado.edu/news/reports/churchill/. For more information call (303) 492-3114.
