UConn Responds To Video Of Professor, Creationists

by Categorized: Uncategorized Date:

Another state professor. Another rant, this time from UConn’s James Boster, Professor of Anthropology.


By Wednesday afternoon, the university put out a statement.

“Everyone has the right to exercise free speech on our campuses. At the same time, we expect our faculty to act in a way that promotes civil discourse and to express themselves respectfully. The use of abusive language and a confrontational posture are inconsistent with UConn’s values.”

Boster started at UConn in 1997. He makes $119,486 a year.
