University of Maryland Professor Melissa Landa was dismissed from her position in the Education College last spring immediately after concluding a grievance against the college. UMD’s administration is now conducting an investigation to determine whether Landa was fired in retaliation or subject to any other form of discrimination. Landa is ACF Oberlin’s Chapter Leader and a vocal proponent against all forms of hatred on campus including anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism.
