ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A University of New Mexico professor who was suspended and censured after a sexual harassment investigation that involved interviews of students and faculty will return to the classroom this fall, albeit under supervision.
UNM Provost Chaouki Abdallah, in a statement to the Journal, on Wednesday acknowledged the case involving assistant anthropology professor Cristobal Valencia and said the university’s goal was to “prevent future misconduct.”
“Every effort has been and will be taken to protect the rights of all students and faculty,” the statement read. “The findings are troubling, and the recommended discipline is designed to re-establish a good learning environment that ensures the safety and well being of everyone who is affected.”
But those findings remain secret as the university produced documents that were blacked out extensively.
