Wisconsin professor suspended after criticizing ‘woke dysphoria’
Concordia College in Wisconsin has suspended a professor after he criticized “woke dysphoria” at the school.
“It is our understanding that the University suspended Dr. [Gregory] Schulz for his public criticism of the search for a new president and the overall direction of the university,” Dan Lennington, the professor’s attorney, told The College Fix recently.
“The University has asked that Dr. Schulz ‘recant’ his views and apologize for offending University officials, which he is unwilling to do,” the Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty attorney said. WILL is assisting Schulz in his battle.
Lennington told The Fix that his client (pictured) remains suspended and “has not received any due process” in a March 4 email. “Every day that goes by, he is harmed again. We are calling on the University to lift the suspension immediately.”
It all began when the philosophy professor and Lutheran minister wrote an opinion piece for a Christian blog site.
“My Concordia university is experiencing dysphoria because it is coming under the influence of Woke-ism (that is, a potent cocktail of Progressivism, Neo-Pragmatism, and Marxism),” Schulz wrote in a February 14 article for Christian News.
The philosophy professor, who has been considered as a candidate to be the university’s next president, criticized Concordia for allegedly prioritizing candidates who support diversity, equity, inclusion and critical race theory ideology.
The search committee members “have been publicly announcing their determination to have a president who exhibits a ‘demonstrated belief in and commitment to equity and inclusion,’” Schulz said. The committee also wants a candidate “who promotes racialized ‘diversity in all its myriad forms,’” he wrote.
