Drexel University is recognizing the “significant scholarly contributions” of a professor who notoriously wished for “white genocide” for Christmas.
CNN reported Thursday that Prof. George Ciccariello-Maher would be pursuing “other opportunities” while it lauded his work at the school.
“Drexel University has accepted his resignation and recognizes the significant scholarly contributions that Professor Ciccariello-Maher has made to the field of political thought and his service to the Drexel University community as an outstanding classroom teacher,” the university said in a statement. “Drexel University wishes Professor Ciccariello-Maher well in his future pursuits.”
George Ciccariello-Maher, who taught politics and global studies, announced his resignation Thursday on Twitter, writing that “After Dec. 31, 2017, I will no longer work at Drexel University.”
