Today the Regents of the University of California voted to dismiss a tenured professor, who had been on unpaid suspension, for violating the Faculty Code of Conduct due to sexual misconduct with a student over whom they had academic responsibility.

This decision was consistent with the recommendation of the UC Riverside Academic Senate Privilege and Tenure Committee, UC Riverside Chancellor Kim A. Wilcox, and President Michael Drake.
