Hamline College’s full-time school members voted 71 to 12 on Monday to name for the resignation of President Fayneese Miller, The Pioneer Press reported.
Miller’s administration referred to as it “undeniably thoughtless, disrespectful and Islamophobic” and “an act of intolerance” for an adjunct professor, Erika López Prater, to have proven a picture of Muhammad at school within the fall. López Prater subsequently didn’t get rehired for the spring semester. Educational freedom advocates have criticized Miller and have famous that López Prater warned her college students about what she was going to do.
“We’re distressed that members of the administration have mishandled this challenge and nice hurt has been achieved to the fame of Minnesota’s oldest college,” stated an announcement the college adopted. “As we not think about President Miller’s capability to guide the college ahead, we name upon her to instantly tender her resignation to the Hamline College Board of Trustees.”
A Hamline spokesman stated Miller was discussing together with her crew the best way to reply.
In a joint assertion Jan. 17 with the chair of Hamline’s Board of Trustees, Miller stated “generally we misstep” and that it was “flawed” to have used the phrase “Islamophobic” to explain the incident. The assertion got here out the identical day López Prater sued the college.
