U of I trustees dismiss engineering professor

Posted:

Springfield (AP) -- The University of Illinois Board of Trustees has dismissed an engineering professor who had a 50-year career at the state's flagship school.

 

Administrators say it's the first time a tenure decision went to the board. Trustees made the decision Thursday in Springfield.

 

Louis Wozniak was charged with offenses including harassing a student, improperly obtaining and publishing grades and sending an email to students that included a sexual reference. He apologized for that email the next day. Wozniak was suspended with pay from his $85,000-a-year job in 2010 after the email.

 

A faculty review committee had found Wozniak was in error in just one area and said his three-year suspension was penalty enough.
