MADISON, Wis. — Once seen as a leader who could bring diversity to the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, a former dean fired for financial mismanagement has filed a federal discrimination lawsuit claiming he was ousted because he’s black. Lee Jones argues in the lawsuit in U.S. District Court that top university officials singled him out for the audit that unfairly criticized him and cost him his career in higher education.

University officials have denied his allegations of racism and said Jones’ own actions are to blame for his downward spiral from a young black scholar nationally known for motivational speaking to a disgraced ex-dean.

Jones was the first of two black deans to allege discrimination at UW-Whitewater.
