Professor Accused of Bullying Grad Student in Class

Professor Accused of Bullying Grad Student in Class


A lesbian graduate student at Indiana University of Pennsylvania said she was called "disgusting, unnatural, and abnormal" by a professor because of her sexual orientation.

When the topic of sex-reassignment surgery came up during a lecture, the business professor then turned the discussion to homosexuality, where she made the statement that being gay is "disgusting, unnatural, and abnormal." Christina Santiago asked the professor whether she and other LGBT students should actually be considered that way. The professor replied yes and then went on to complain about being forced to take part in diversity training.

Santiago is no longer enrolled in the course.

A statement from the university's faculty union read, "We understand that [these] accusations are serious and need to be investigated by the university. At the same time, we advocate for the rights of the faculty and the processes for investigating complaints against faculty must be followed."
