Three black full-time professors are leaving the University of Denver Graduate School of Professional Psychology, sparking a rally of black students. Axios reported.
Graduate students told Axios about racist incidents and micro-aggression in Denver. And one of the teachers said her decision to leave was “difficult” but because of the climate at the university and the inequality of the workload.
A spokeswoman said the departures were of “great concern” to the university. “University leaders are working hard to address the issues raised by our color teachers and will continue to do so,” she said. The university is also launching a task force on equality of workload in response to concerns expressed by color teachers.
