Students Call for Brandman University to Reinstate Dean Christine Zeppos

Christine Zeppos, the former dean of the School of Education at Brandman University in Irvine, California, is suing the university for wrongful termination. Dr. Zeppos claims that she was fired for speaking out in support of a harassment-free workplace and for more equal human resources processes for men and women. Dr. Zeppos claims that she was offered money and a chance to resign if she agreed to keep quiet. However, she refused the offer and went public by posting her outrage on Facebook.

Brandman University denies Dr. Zeppos’s claims. A petition has been created at calling on the university to reinstate Dean Zeppos.

Dr. Zeppos had been with the university since 2010. Earlier, she was vice president for academic affairs and dean of the School of Education at Agrosy University.
