Students who signed up for classes to be taught this semester by McAdams were notified shortly before Christmas that the classes had been canceled and were offered other class options, Marquette University spokesman Brian Dorrington confirmed Tuesday. …

Philosophy graduate student teaching assistant Cheryl Abbate also did not return to campus this week.

“The safety of our students and campus community is our top priority,” Dorrington said Tuesday in a prepared statement. “The university has a policy in which it clearly states that it does not tolerate harassment and will not stand for faculty members subjecting students to any form of abuse, putting them in harm’s way.
