Publication Date



In the past year, a number of higher education faculty across the country have been accused, harassed, and in the worst instances threatened for things they have not said. These stories ring true and they ring hard, because it has happened to me. I’ve been hesitant to write about this, because my situation never became public, was resolved amicably, and I received nothing but support from my Administration. But since the spring semester of 2017 I have watched other, worst cases, of this scenario play out across our nation’s campuses.
