Marcia Hermansen

Dr. Marcia Hermansen is a Professor of Islamic Studies at Loyola University-Chicago. Hermansen said after the election of Donald Trump that professors should give Muslim students extra time on assignments if they requested; "“If a Muslim student requests extra time to complete assignments, it may be because they feel threatened" she said at a post-election discussion. Additionally, Hermansen has a problem of intolerance towards people critical of Islam, as she once backed out of a panel with Islam critic Robert Spencer.  The event was supposed to be about different perspectives on Islam, but Hermansen apparently was offended that it would actually involve different perspectives on Islam.
