Texas Woman's Settles With Terminated Professor

July 18, 2019

Texas Woman’s University settled with a former associate professor of management for more than $375,000, according to the Denton Record-Chronicle. The university’s Board of Regents voted unanimously to terminate the professor, Molly Russ, two months ago, following a yearlong dispute. She has since resigned.

Russ filed an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission complaint last spring, according to the Record-Chronicle. The university told her she was being terminated in August, and she appealed. Both parties declined to comment on the settlement, citing its terms. But a university spokesperson said that Texas Woman’s has never before terminated a tenured professor.
