As far back as December 9, 2015, Katherine Mack, a professor and English department chairwoman at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, has been against the up-and-coming and now president, Donald Trump. The professor urged employees at the University of Colorado in 2015 to sign a petition calling for the school to become a sanctuary campus for “undocumented students, staff, workers and their families.” Mack states, in The Gazette of Colorado, “The petition generated a groundswell of support from across the campus; faculty from all ranks – tenured-track, tenured, nontenured-track and staff – chose to sign it.” According to The Gazette of Colorado, however, the petition only acquired 200 signatures. In 2015, the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs had 799 employees. Now Katherine Mack has assigned books that criticize President Trump as required reading material for her class. The book material reportedly claims that people should challenge the “Trump effect” and also label the president’s supporters as prejudiced against minority groups. Campus Reform received this information from the course syllabus, “Topics in Public Rhetorics,” from a student who wished to remain anonymous.
