Yale University placed Dean June Chu, who received criticism for remarks such as calling people “white trash,” on leave Thursday.
In an email, Stephen Davis, who leads the residential Pierson College at Yale to which Dean Chu belongs, told Yale students and faculty that the dean had been placed on leave, calling her language “inappropriate,” “unacceptable,” and “deeply harmful to [Yale’s] community fabric,” according to The Wall Street Journal.
“When I wrote to you on Saturday morning, it was with the understanding—and under assurance from Dean Chu, an assurance given to me and to others—that she had posted only two troubling reviews on social media,” said Davis in his email to Yale. “On Saturday evening, I found out that she was in fact responsible for multiple reprehensible posts, enough to represent a more widespread pattern.”
“No one, especially those in trusted positions of educating young people, should denigrate or stereotype others, and that extends to any form of discrimination based on class, race, religion, age, disability, gender identity, or sexual orientation.
