Georgetown law professor fired after complaining about Black students' grades on Zoom call

0


Georgetown University Law Center fired a professor over “reprehensible statements” made concerning Black students during a Zoom call, the law school’s dean confirmed Thursday.

Another professor who was seen nodding in agreement during the conservation has been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation.

The university immediately terminated its relationship with Sandra Sellers after a recording of the video chat was shared online and drew national attention, according to a statement from Bill Treanor, dean of the law center.

“I hate to say this,” Sellers said on the call when discussing the evaluation of students. “I end up having this angst every semester that a lot of my lower ones are Blacks — happens almost every semester. And it’s like, ‘Oh, come on.’ You know? You get some really good ones. But there are also usually some that are just plain at the bottom. It drives me crazy.”
