UA Professor Settles Gender Discrimination Lawsuit


A University of Arizona professor has settled a $20 million gender discrimination lawsuit against the Arizona Board of Regents. 

The Arizona Daily Star reports that the board would pay $100,000 to associate professor of chemistry and biochemistry Katrina Miranda.

Officials say the federal lawsuit was filed in December 2018 on behalf of Miranda and all female faculty members in the College of Science who have worked at the Tucson-based university for at least three years.

Miranda says she experienced gender discrimination that resulted in lesser pay than her male counterparts since begin her job in 2002. Miranda could not be reached for comment.
