LAWRENCE, KS (KCTV/AP) -
A journalism professor suspended over a tweet that angrily targeted the National Rifle Association after the Navy Yard shootings will not return to his University of Kansas classroom in 2013.
Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little announced Thursday that David Guth, who was placed on administrative leave Sept. 20, would not teach the rest of this semester and would take a planned sabbatical in the spring. Teaching assignments for the fall of 2014 are not yet set.
However, his suspension has been lifted as of Friday and he will return to work at KU, just not teaching students this year. He will handle various administrative and service duties.
"Those assignments will be completed away from campus to the greatest extent possible," Gray-Little said in a statement.
Guth posted the tweet after the September shootings killed 13 people in Washington, DC. It said, "The blood is on the hands of the #NRA. Next time, let it be YOUR sons and daughters. Shame on you. May God damn you."
Phone and email messages left with Guth seeking comment weren't immediately returned.
KU officials said Guth's tweets caused a disruption to the university's learning environment.
Provost Jeffrey Vitter made the recommendation to Gray-Little after hearing from a special seven-member committee of faculty and staff convened to consider Guth's punishment.
"The committee conducted a full review, and their input was instrumental in arriving at this decision," Gray-Little said. "Our decisions throughout this situation have been guided by the facts and the law, respecting the interests of our students and the rights and responsibilities of citizenship."
