CU-Boulder professor criticized over skit

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - University of Colorado officials say they are concerned that students are not being warned their participation in a skit about prostitution might be videotaped.

Arts and Sciences dean Steven Leigh said Wednesday students are required to sign consent forms, and that wasn't being done in a class on deviant behavior.

CU Provost Russell Moore sent an email to students, faculty and staff earlier this week saying sociology professor Patti Adler is being suspended from teaching the class because of complaints from students who did not want to participate in a role-playing skit. Students said they felt their grades would be affected if they did not participate.

According to the Boulder Daily Camera, Adler told students the skit on prostitution is seen as a risk to the university.
