BOULDER, Colo. — The University of Colorado announced a tenured professor at the Boulder campus has been cleared to keep on teaching a controversial class called “Deviance in U.S. Society.”

Prof. Patti Adler’s class came under scrutiny last month after teaching assistants say they were forced to participate in a skit about prostitution.

A CU committee ruled Wednesday the class is “appropriate” and decided Adler can continue teaching it.

She has not said if she’ll return to the school.
