University of Colorado officials have ordered a Boulder professor to stop teaching a course on deviant behavior because of a lecture on prostitution.
CU Provost Russell Moore sent an email to students, faculty and staff on Monday saying sociology professor Patti Adler is being suspended from teaching the class because of complaints from students who did not want to participate in a role-playing skit. Students said they felt their grades would be affected if they did not participate.
According to the Boulder Daily Camera, school officials deny they are trying to force Adler out. Adler told students the skit on prostitution was seen as a risk to the university.
