More than 100 Cal State Long Beach faculty members have signed a letter in support of a professor at the university who accused campus police of racial profiling.

Steven Osuna, an associate professor of sociology who is Latino, accused campus police of racial discrimination after an officer refused to unlock his office door when he accidentally locked himself out. The faculty members’ letter of support was in response to a July 12 complaint to the university’s board of trustees from the Statewide University Police Assn., the union that represents campus police, which had accused Osuna of dishonesty.

“The Statewide University Police Association (SUPA) is saying I should be investigated for ‘dishonesty and malicious intent’ for speaking up against racial profiling,” Osuna tweeted. “This is clear intimidation and an attempt to silence my union and I.”

The university’s policy states that campus doors will be unlocked for faculty and staff who provide positive identification, such as a campus staff or faculty ID card, have permission to go into the area and express a need for the door to be unlocked.
