Excerpt: A month after the University Board of Trustees voted to dismiss classics professor Joshua Katz following an internal report finding he violated University policies, questions around his dismissal still animate discourse both on campus and beyond as alumni, professors, and students in his field react to the controversial decision.

While multiple students and alumni who spoke to The Daily Princetonian expressed relief that a professor who had engaged in a relationship with an undergraduate would no longer be part of the faculty, other University community members have written publicly in disagreement with the University’s decision and in defense of Katz.
