Case Overview

In the fall of 2022, New York University terminated chemistry professor Maitland Jones Jr.’s contract without due process, following a student petition claiming his class was too difficult. On October 24, FIRE wrote NYU explaining its decision to fire Jones violated the academic freedom and due process rights that the university guarantees faculty and is a clear affront to faculty rights.
