Email News Alerts

UND has plans to fire a classics professor who is serving jail time for assaulting a nurse, but he is appealing to prevent such a move, university spokesman Peter Johnson said.


University officials have sent a letter to Daniel Erickson, telling him they intend to terminate him because he is unable to teach classes, Johnson said.

Erickson, 52, is being held at the Grand Forks County jail and is not part of the facility's work-release program.
