    My name is Dr. Tempii Champion, and I was a tenured faculty at LIU Brooklyn. I am an African American woman with a disability. LIU terminated me on 3/15/2017 stating that students complained about me about alleged comments that I made. I have never received a copy of their investigation. Before my termination, I had been harassed by the administration about requesting a handicapped parking space as an accommodation for my stroke. The union gave me their spot but did not stop security asking me to move for a sports team car. LIU does not have but one designated handicapped space which is the union’s space. The parking lot has over 100 spaces and no handicapped spaces. How are they allowed to get away with this?

    I was elected chair by the faculty and protected faculty from students. There is a untenured faculty person who teaching evaluations are low, and complaints are many on how she treats students. In one class where the students were a minority, during an exam the students were told to look at the ceiling while the exams were given out. She collected their phones so that they could not cheat.

    This was graduate class. This information was conveyed to dean Eckert, and he buried it. When I told him of complaints, he told me that he would get her a mentor. This professor did not get tenure at Brooklyn College. She is European.

    I also complained about the number of students that the dept was forced to take in because Cline wanted the money. I am an ethical person and knew it was harming our program and the students. The program is now on probation from our accrediting body because of standards not being followed.

    I left a tenured job from the University of South Florida, a research university and earned tenure again at LIU Brooklyn. I have no previous complaints. My HR record is clean, and I get fired with no due process in NYC. I am asking for LIU to be investigated on how they treat AA faculty and people with disabilities.

    I want to make an appointment to see the senator in regards to the schedule, and late arrivals of the #3 train, also B 35 buses and the inconvenience they cause daily, especially on Mondays.
