Concordia investigating professor over alleged racist comments

October 31, 2016

Concordia University has removed a business professor from teaching while it investigates claims that the professor made racist remarks to one of his classes. A Concordia student reportedly claimed that Roumen Solov told a student to “shut up” before making disparaging remarks toward a specific race. Solov said in an email to the Montreal Gazette that he “strongly disputes this version of events and contests the facts as reported” and adds that they are “based on social media false allegations.” He added that based on instructions from his faculty and recommendations from his union, he could not comment further.
