“No one should have to live in fear that they will be targeted for how they look or what they believe," the email continues, urging the nursing school students to "care for everyone regardless of race, creed, color, religion, ethnicity, ability or gender preference."

A nursing student took issue with the dean's choice of words and posted the email on Twitter saying, "including the statement ‘all lives matter’ was uncalled for and shows the narrow minded people in lead positions."

The university responded to the student on Twitter and said "Thank you for bringing this to our attention. The university hears you and we believe black lives matter," redirecting her to a statement by the chancellor of the university addressing the Black Lives Matter movement.

After her termination, Neal-Boylan reached out to UML Chancellor Jacqueline Moloney, Provost Joseph Hartman and Provost Julie Nash, accusing the university of using her email regarding Black Lives Matter as an excuse to fire her. She said she had spoken up about other, unrelated school issues in the past, according to emails reviewed by Campus Reform.
