About the MU Equity Office

The MU Equity Office works with MU faculty, staff, and students who believe they may have been subjected to unfair or inequitable treatment for any reason.

Our office seeks to address bias, including but not limited to discrimination on the basis of considerations prohibited by law or official university policy. We assist individuals who believe they may have been harassed or treated differently from others in the same situation. More about MU Equity Office staff and services.

Get Help: Informal Investigations

You Be the Judge!

Community College is seeking a psychology instructor with teaching experience and a minimum of a master's degree; community college teaching experience preferred. Ron, a 65-year old White male, has a Ph.D. and 21 years of university teaching experience (with a semester at Community) and twenty years of clinical experience; he has published 42 articles and three book reviews. Bertha is a 35-year old Black female with a master's degree and four years of teaching at Community College. The search committee gave both candidates "Recommended" ratings, although Ron scored higher. Bertha was hired.
