The FBI and the Department of Homeland Security are investigating Julio Pino, a Kent State associate history professor, for alleged involvement with the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL.
A joint terrorism task force has been investigating Pino for the last year and a half, said an FBI special agent who did not wish to be named for safety reasons.
“There is no direct threat to the university,” the agent said.
The agent said they interviewed several faculty members and more than 20 of Pino’s students Tuesday about his alleged involvement. He is also being investigated for allegedly recruiting students to join ISIS.
Pino said neither the FBI nor Homeland Security has notified him of any sort of investigation.
“From a legal standpoint, I’m not aware that they’re going after me or charging me with anything,” he said. “I’m not aware of any kind of criminal investigation or charges or anything of that sort.”
He also said the university has not contacted him about the investigation.
Pino said all of his activities are legal and he does not support the Islamic State, nor does he discuss the terrorist organization in his classes.
