Inside Higher Ed has the details.

As with any job change, Dorman said, there were multiple factors to consider, but he said campus carry was decisive. “I would have left academia entirely rather than teach on a campus that allowed students to have guns in the classroom,” he said.

Dorman, who earned his Ph.D. from the University of California, Los Angeles, in 2004, has had considerable success in his field. He has won fellowships from the American Council of Learned Societies, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Newberry Library and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. His book, The Rise of American Black Israelite Religions (Oxford University Press), won three awards for scholarship.
