U of I Trustees Dismiss Tenured Professor
The University of Illinois Board of Trustees has dismissed a tenured professor at the Urbana-Champaign campus.
Trustees voted unanimously to remove engineering professor Louis Wozniak's tenure and terminate his employment.
Wozniak is accused of a list of charges, including publishing confidential information about students, videotaping them without permission, intimidating students, and attempting to interfere with grades. He had been suspended without pay for more than three years.
A faculty review committee had previously found Wozniak was in error in just one area, and said his three-year suspension was penalty enough.
Wozniak had been tenured since 1972. He is a U of I graduate and had been on the faculty since 1967.
