Gallaudet Reinstates Diversity Official

January 8, 2013
 

Gallaudet University has reinstated Angela McCaskill, the institution's chief diversity officer, who was suspended for signing a petition against the recognition of gay marriage by Maryland, the Associated Press reported. The university announced the reinstatement, but did not elaborate or respond to requests for comment.

But critics said that the university was inappropriately punishing McCaskill for expressing political views.
