New Arizona Law Deters Faculty Job Applicants
Arizona State University has lost about 15 to 20 faculty job applicants since the passage of an immigration law that is widely viewed as encouraging ethnic and racial profiling, The Arizona Republic reported. Michael Crow, president of the university and a critic of the law, cited the figures in an interview. He also said that the university has received calls from officials "all over the world asking if it's still safe to send students," he said. "We say everything will be fine."
