According to a news article published today by NewsChannel 8 of Washington, D.C., Dr. Angela McCaskill is happy to be back at Gallaudet University serving in her role as Chief Diversity Officer. After a three-month paid administrative leave, McCaskill says she felt welcomed back and does not feel nervous about her return. The article fails to mention that the majority of the faculty, staff and students are away on winter break and are not expected to return to campus until January 22.
The article goes on to state that McCaskill is still seeking compensation from the university. She believes the university is responsible for damages to her reputation and she should be compensated.
When asked if she had a message for those who don’t understand or support her return, McCaskill told the reporter, “I’ll pray for them.”
