A Midwestern State University professor is under investigation for allegedly forcing students in her graphic design class to create anti-gun posters for her own personal anti-gun campaign.
Professor Jennifer Yucus compelled students to create artwork opposing firearms on campus and opposing pro-gun legislation currently pending before the Texas state legislature, Campus Reform reported.
A student filed an official complaint on Thursday, according to Campus Reform, prompting school administrators at the public university in Texas to initiate an investigation.
According to the complaint, the professor used the artwork students created online to publicize an anti-gun petition entitled “MSU is anti-Concealed Carry on Campus” and on a now deleted Facebook page opposing firearms.
“Several of my classmates were uncomfortable with the assignment and either quietly or openly expressed this,” the complaint continues. “Professor Yucus asked students to rationalize objections by thinking of it as a job from an employer (or words to that effect).”
Yucus is said to have required that all works include the URL to the petition she had created and photographed students while crafting the posters to give the illusion of youth support.
Even more troubling for the professor, the complaint states that she used her official university-issued e-mail address to later forward a URL to her petition to the entire class.
As noted by Campus Reform:
State law in Texas appears to forbid professors at public universities from using their authority to compel others to advocate for political causes.
“A state officer or employee may not use official authority… to interfere with or affect the result of an election or nomination of a candidate or to achieve any other political purpose,” reads subsection C of 556.004 of Government Code, Title 5, entitled “Open Government, Ethics.”
