Photo essay: Demonstration at IUP's Eberly College of Business

Students and faculty rallied in front of the business school at Indiana University of Pennsylvania on Oct. 12 in support of a student who said a professor there had criticized her professed homosexuality during a Sept. 26 class attended by five students.

Photographer Heather Tabacchi, a communications media major, captured the event, the protesters and their posters in support of lesbian Christina I. "Nina" Santiago, 22, a graduate student seeking a master's degree in business administration at Eberly College of Business.

The incident is under investigation, campus administrators said.
