Professor Banned From Campus for Allegedly Threatening Colleagues

September 12, 2019

The University of San Diego suspended an unnamed professor for allegedly threatening two other faculty members, according to The San Diego Union-Tribune. A group of faculty members reportedly said in a statement that a colleague put images of sniper rifles or scopes under two professors' office doors, and that they wanted the "responsible individual to be held accountable for his actions."

The faculty statement further accused the unnamed professor of posting flyers calling three faculty members fascists and urging a boycott of their classes. But the university reportedly said that the images in question were of crosshairs, adding that the professor was removed from campus and banned from university property and activities pending an investigation.
