A Collin College education professor for nearly 20 years says she is being let go after forming a local chapter of a faculty advocacy group and criticizing the college’s COVID-19 reopening plans.

Suzanne Jones, who has taught at the college for almost 20 years, said she and humanities professor Audra Heaslip were on track to have their contracts renewed when they were called in for a meeting with the provost.

“I was told that I would not be getting my contract extension and I started to ask why but I was told to be quiet and just listen,” Jones said. “I was told I would have the opportunity to ask questions and defend myself at another time.”
