Alma Luz Villanueva has been an instructor and mentor on staff at Antioch University-Los Angeles (AULA) for 20 years. Despite being beloved by students and a pillar of their MFA program, she was wrongfully terminated after a single, minor student complaint, while people on staff for only a few years and numerous complaints have remained employed. Upon termination Alma was specifically told to “be quiet,” about the whole thing, while administrators have dodged and lied to alumni regarding the situation. AULA’s MFA program was started with an emphasis on social justice but has become increasingly corporate and exclusive over the years. Alma’s former students will not stand by and watch her be bullied into silence. Alma will not stay silent. This petition remands Alma be reinstated as faculty at AULA and given the respect she deserves. It also demands transparency from AULA from here on out regarding any staff or curriculum changes.
