American University Staff Editorial Asks School to Honor Commitment to “Inclusive Excellence”
American University student-lead newspaper, The Eagle , shared an opinion piece on Friday, April 13, 2018 expressing concern as the school recruits a new provost to replace retiring Scott Bass. Provost Bass has been accused of discrimination in the tenure process by multiple women, including Bernabei & Kabat clients.
The editorial author, “E”, argues that current AU professors deserve:
“to feel respected and represented in our community. This cannot be accomplished when allegations of discrimination cloud their work environment. They deserve a fair tenure process. If not, we must consider the example that AU is demonstrating for its own budding student-scholars and the higher education community. The next provost must work to repair this reputation and reform the environment that produced it.”
