UCF plans to terminate a professor who came under fire over the summer for tweets described as racist by students and alumni after a university investigation found he created a “hostile” classroom environment, deterred students from filing complaints about his classroom conduct, failed to report that a student said she had been sexually assaulted by one of his teaching assistants and provided false information during the probe.
