Appointment Of University Staffer To New Position Opposed ‘Solely Because She Was White,’ Lawsuit Claims

via TMJ4 News

A staff member at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire sued the university, claiming she was ousted from her position in a diversity office because she is white.

The lawsuit alleges that students and staff opposed her appointment based solely on her race, despite her qualifications.

“You hired a white woman as the Interim Director?” a student complained. (Trending: Assault Weapons Ban Set To Take Effect, Here’s What To Know)

“Despite Hoffman’s exceptional qualifications, however, students, faculty and staff opposed her appointment to Interim Director of MSS solely because she was white,” the complaint reads.

“It was exclusively Hoffman’s identity as white that was the issue; criticism was about her race and color, not her qualifications.”

“As is the case with all pending litigation, UW-Eau Claire will not offer a statement or comment on the lawsuit. UW-Eau Claire does not discriminate based on race in any employment decisions,” a UW-Eau Claire spokesperson said.
