BOULDER — The University of Colorado says it will ignore criticism from Colorado chapters of the American Association of University Professors after the university removed the philosophy department chair and suspended all graduate student admissions over complaints of sexual harassment and bullying in the department.

According to the Boulder Daily Camera (http://bit.ly/Qk89il ), the association recommended that the administration halt the suspension of graduate admissions and review replacing the department chairman.

The changes were ordered after an investigation found 15 complaints made to CU's Office of Discrimination Harassment since 2007.
