9News is reporting that a talk by University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill scheduled for tonight is back on. Churchill’s speech had been cancelled yesterday due to security concerns.

Both student planners and Prof. Churchill reported death threats against them, according to university officials.

“We met again with students who retracted their earlier reports of death threats and urged us to allow the event to go forward,” said Ron Stump, CU Chancellor for Student Affairs.

Earlier in the day, CU students, faculty and staff who support embattled professor Ward Churchill filed a motion to force the university to allow him to speak.
