George Mason University faces push back from students after the hiring of Justice Brett Kavanaugh

Virginia

Only a few months after Justice Brett Kavanaugh was sworn into the Supreme Court, he will now be joining George Mason University’s faculty to teach classes.


Starting in June, Justice Brett Kavanaugh will begin teaching classes for the Antonin Scalia Law School, a two-week course in England. This news, however, isn’t sitting well with students at George Mason University who take issue with Justice Kavanaugh’s controversial past which came about when Doctor Christine Blasey Ford came forth and accused of Kavanaugh for sexually assaulting her in the summer of 1982 in Bethesda, Maryland. The news has sparked many groups like Mason for Survivors GMU to protest the school’s hiring.

“As a survivor, as a student who comes to this university, and expects to have a good education, to experience a happy, safe place, I am insulted. Cabrera, our president, it seems as if he’s not standing with survivors, it’s as if he doesn’t care about us as students, and about our safety, and our well-being,” said Elijah Nichols, GMU student, and survivor. 

Mason for Survivors will be hosting a teaching event Thursday March 28th to discuss the school’s Title IX resources as well as the concerns over Justice Kavanaugh becoming a faculty member.
