A professor at New Brunswick’s Mount Allison University has been suspended following an investigation into alleged “discriminatory conduct.”
University spokesman Robert Hiscock confirmed in an email Friday that Rima Azar, an associate professor of health psychology, will not be teaching next fall.
Hiscock says the university had hired an independent investigator to review complaints about Azar’s interaction with students and about posts on her personal blog.
He says the complaints alleged discriminatory conduct but says he can’t provide details because of privacy concerns.
