HIGHER EDUCATION BUBBLE UPDATE, “DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION” EDITION: A professor joined the Trump administration and faced systemic bias when she returned, lawsuit says.

Whitney Bailey’s career at Oklahoma State University was going great – until the professor accepted an appointment to the Trump administration.

When she returned to campus after her public service, Bailey says she faced political discrimination from administrators, whom a review committee found had engaged in “systematic failure to follow university policy” regarding Bailey. It resulted in her also losing paid gigs she put on hold for public service.

Bailey filed a First Amendment lawsuit against the taxpayer-funded institution, as well as its provost, dean, department and assistant department heads, News 9 reports. The officials were in charge of her promotion request when Bailey returned.

Good. Punch back twice as hard.
