Philosophy Professor at U. of Colorado at Boulder Is Placed on Leave

The University of Colorado at Boulder has placed an associate professor of philosophy on paid leave for unspecified reasons and barred him from the campus, the Daily Camera reported.

An email from the philosophy department’s chairman told faculty members to call the police if they saw the professor, Dan Kaufman, on the campus.

The news came weeks after the university released a report on widespread sexual harassment in the philosophy department, although there was no indication that Mr. Kaufman’s leave was connected to what was described in that document.

In an email to the newspaper, Mr. Kaufman said it would be “highly irresponsible for anyone to say anything about anything related to this situation at this point in time.”
