A University of Cincinnati professor is no longer teaching after making anti-Islamic comments toward a Muslim student.
One of his comments on her assignment read: "Muslim females are safer in America than in any Middle Eastern country. How dare you complain while enjoying our protection!"
The university investigated College-Conservatory of Music Assistant Professor Clifford Adams' comments after The Enquirer reported them in October. Another UC student had posted a photo of the exchange on Facebook.
"The university is committed to excellence and diversity in order to create the best living and learning environment on behalf of our students, faculty and staff," university spokesman Greg Vehr said in a statement Thursday. "We take seriously all allegations of discriminatory behavior. The university investigated this matter and followed the process for review under the collective bargaining agreement with the faculty."
