Position beginning Fall 2016 in English (Creative Writing) department.
As per the 2016 Creative Writing Wiki: multiple complaints by multiple candidates of poor treatment during initial interviews and campus visits.
WIthin five minutes, the SC member asked the candidate if she had children.
This was clearly a case of employment discrimination where the woman candidate with young children was not hired because of her gender and the fact that she had kids.Being that this was supposedly a "Christian university," the candidate even turned down another job when she was offered that job two months before Indiana Wesleyan could finalize their search.The committee also knew that she turned down another job out of being "ethical." The SC chair promised the candidate that he would let her know the result either way.Issues have included members of administration in black face for halloween, an official policy of "no fat people" on the website, faculty members having their book orders cancelled, a lowering of academic standards to allow more athletes into the College, and the President vetoing faculty votes on a whim. Sent another email to follow up, and they wrote back that they had moved on because they were on a tight schedule.
If your face does not fit you will not get tenure, all the LGBT faculty have to remain in the closet for fear of being fired, senior administration shout and bully junior faculty. Cell phone crashed when search committee called, and I immediately emailed to let them know what was going on. Would have been nice to have been given a fair shot, considering the phone malfunction was not my fault.
They instead decided to retaliate against a faculty member whose only sin was helping a female student properly report an incident of sexual harassment.
