Apparent Win for Adjunct With a Past

Inside Higher Ed
November 14th, 2014

The University of Illinois Board of Trustees issued a statement late Thursday regarding James Kilgore, the adjunct professor of global studies and urban planning who was barred from teaching at its Urbana-Champaign campus last year after a local newspaper published reports detailing his criminal past as part of the Symbionese Liberation Army, in the 1970s. The statement appears to make it possible for Kilgore to resume teaching.
The board’s discussion of Kilgore's case, presumably based on a recent faculty report endorsing his continued employment at the university, took place behind closed doors at its meeting Thursday. But following the meeting, the board announced that it had engaged in “robust debate that represented a wide range of divergent viewpoints."
