Faculty members from Marquette and Seattle Universities took out a full-page ad in The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel to condemn Marquette's recent decision to rescind a job offer as dean to a Seattle professor who is a lesbian and whose scholarship includes issues of lesbian sexuality, the Journal Sentinel reported. "We believe this action has caused significant harm to the reputation of Marquette University," the ad says. "It threatens our credibility and integrity as a university. It has caused suffering among students, alumni, staff, and faculty, and it will cost Marquette considerably in terms of community relationships, research, and recruiting and retaining students and faculty." University officials have denied that the rescinded job offer was discrimination based on sexual orientation.
