ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The University of New Mexico has again suspended an assistant professor of anthropology.

Officials announced Tuesday that the school has received new information that has led to an emergency suspension of Dr. Cristobal Valencia.

Effective immediately, Valencia is suspended from all academic duties associated with his faculty appointment including teaching, research and service.

UNM officials didn’t specifically say why Valencia is being suspended again.

But Albuquerque TV station KOB reports that Valencia was suspended last spring for allegedly sexually harassing female students.

He was reinstated to teach this semester and that reportedly outraged some of his alleged victims.

UNM officials say Valencia’s latest suspension will remain in place while new allegations against him are investigated or until the case is resolved.
