Oregon Board of Rabbis calls for resignations at Linfield University


On April 15, the Oregon Board of Rabbis called for the resignation of Linfield University President Miles K. Davis and board chair David Baca for their “mishandling of serious allegations of sexual harassment” and a “stream of comments insinuating religious bias.”
