Lessenberry protest

Date: 
Tue, May 22, 2018 - 6:00pm to 9:00pm

City:

A protest to encourage Wayne State University to take meaningful, and proper action against professor, lecturer and journalism area head Jack Lessenberry. In light of recent events, and allegations of misconduct for decades, we’ve decided to take action as current and former Warriors. He is not the kind of person we feel should be representing our university, or the journalism program. It’s important the proper faculty and administration are aware of our strong feelings to have his teaching privileges revoked.
