Documenting Discrimination in Hiring and Promotion

Peter Wood

Edward Blum is looking for student plaintiffs to challenge racial discrimination in admissions decisions at Harvard, UNC-Chapel Hill, and the University of Wisconsin. His cause is validated by important precedent, including Brown v. Board of Education (1954), which held that “racial discrimination in public education is unconstitutional.”

When it comes to discrimination on the basis of race, ethnicity, or sex, however, it’s even more clearly illegal in faculty hiring and promotion, as Roger Clegg has explained here. In light of this, the National Association of Scholars is also seeking to identify people who believe they have been discriminated against in faculty hiring or promotion and are willing to file lawsuits.  We aren’t targeting particular institutions, but our goal is to document cases of unfair racial discrimination against competent faculty members. If you are or know a faculty member who was denied promotion or hiring, and you have grounds to believe that race, ethnicity, or sex was a factor, please get in touch with us.
