Case Overview

In April 2023, the College of Business Administration and Public Policy at California State University, Dominguez Hills circulated to faculty a proposed diversity, equity, and inclusion policy requiring faculty to implement DEI language and materials into their syllabi and teaching. On June 5, FIRE wrote CSUDH urging it to reject the policy, which would violate faculty members’ right to academic freedom and freedom of conscience. After receiving no response from CSUDH, FIRE wrote the university again on July 5, requesting a substantive response affirming that the university will reject the proposed policy.
