Windsor Star

University’s response brutal


Re: Law prof ‘divisive,’ U of W says, by Joseph Brean, Postmedia News, Nov. 12.

As a longtime friend and colleague of Dr. Emily Carasco, I was shocked and saddened to see the brutal university response to her human rights complaint. I did not recognize the person she was made out to be.

Many colleagues, alumni and students support her, a fact that seemed to be overlooked in The Windsor Star article.

Dr. Carasco has a doctorate in law from Harvard University, an honorary doctoral degree from the Law Society of Upper Canada, several prestigiou­s awards and she was Windsor’s Woman of the Year.

In my view, the vitriolic, intemperat­e and cruel response of the university was both exaggerate­d and unfair. I hope Windsor Star readers will keep an open mind about this complaint while it makes its way through an objective neutral Human Rights Tribunal.
