(St. Paul, MN) — Hamline University faculty are calling on President Fayneese Miller to resign. The Faculty Council president says professors have lost faith in Miller’s leadership after a controversy over Islamic art and academic freedom. The private university drew international attention after choosing to not renew the contract of an art instructor who showed images of the Prophet Muhammad in class. Adjunct instructor Erika López Prater showed the historical depiction after issuing warnings in her syllabus and just before displaying the art. López Prater is suing the university for defamation, religious discrimination, breach of contract, and other claims.
