Schoolcraft College hired its first director of equity and engagement in January of this year.That person, Christopher Hunter, lasted just four months in the position. Hunter recently filed a lawsuit against the college alleging race discrimination, retaliation and First Amendment rights violations."Chris feels strongly about this," Attorney Jessica Salvatore said. "He's somebody who's spent his career committed to issues of diversity and inclusion and trying to fight racism. For him to personally experience it himself and then to be retaliated against for raising those concerns — he feels very strongly that, as a matter of principle, it's a wrong that needs to be righted.
