It also said the school retaliated against Graybill for opposing the school’s employment practices.” “Under the agreement, the Art History Department agrees not to discriminate against any candidate for tenure based on sex. Additionally, the University will pay Graybill $113,098, not retaliate against any person who has opposed practices which that person believes are discriminatory or who assisted in the investigation of the case, and provide information to the Justice Department about its efforts to comply with the agreement.”
