UC Davis Professor Abigail Thompson is facing a backlash on campus for her decision to publish an essay in which she criticized the university’s mandatory “diversity statements” which faculty applicants must sign before they are hired.

According to a report by The College Fix, UC Davis Professor Abigail Thompson is facing a backlash across the country for her decision to pen an essay that criticizes mandatory “diversity statements” that new faculty hires are required to sign before starting work.
