The Olympian: ISU professor fired despite faculty vote

POCATELLO, Idaho – An Idaho State University engineering professor who was suspended in August says he has been fired, despite backing from a faculty appeals board.

The Idaho State Journal reports Habib Sadid confirmed Friday that university president Arthur Vailas had terminated his employment.

In a statement, Vailas said his decision was in the best interests of the institution.
