A renowned author suspended as the head of UBC’s creative writing program due to mysterious “misconduct” allegations has now been fired from the university.
In November 2015 UBC says it received serious allegations against Steven Galloway.
He was on paid leave until the investigation was completed by retired judge Mary Ellen Boyd.
The University determined “there was a record of misconduct that resulted in an irreparable breach of the trust placed in faculty members by the university, its students and the general public. ”
A spokesperson with the university says it will not be commenting on the matter any further at this time.
Galloway is the author of The Cellist of Sarajevo and The Confabulist.
