A North Carolina State University professor is suing the school’s Board of Trustees in federal court after he says his peers and supervisors discriminated against him based on his concerns over and objections to the increasingly “woke” diversity, equity and inclusion curriculum and department initiatives.

Stephen Porter, a tenured professor in the Department of Leadership, Policy and Adult & Higher Education, said his superiors punished him for speaking out against the department’s decision to focus more on social justice than academics.

“Defendants have intentionally and systematically excluded him from departmental programs and activities that are necessary for him to fulfill his job requirements, effectively hollowing his job out from the inside. They have done this in a deliberate effort to set the stage for his eventual termination,” the lawsuit alleges.

Porter told The College Fix the leaders within his department tried to make him so miserable he would quit.

“Public universities know that you can’t just fire someone for unpopular views, so they are increasingly punishing dissenters by hollowing someone’s career out from the inside,” Porter said in an email to The Fix. “It’s basically death by a thousand cuts.”
