The associate master of Yale’s Silliman College, whose controversial email about Halloween costumes sparked vociferous campus protests, has decided to quit teaching classes at the school.

In emails to Business Insider and the Washington Post, Erika Christakis said her decision to cancel her spring classes “comes in response to a campus climate at Yale not ‘conducive to the civil dialogue and open inquiry required to solve our urgent societal problems.’”

Erika’s husband, fellow professor and master Nicholas Christakis, also has called off his spring semester course load and instead will take a sabbatical.
