ORANGE, Calif. (AP) - Chapman University in Southern California has agreed to pay $75,000 to settle a lawsuit alleging it discriminated against a black faculty member.

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission announced the settlement Monday. Chapman didn’t acknowledge any wrongdoing.

The EEOC lawsuit contended that the private university refused tenure and promotion to assistant marketing professor Stephanie Dellande because she is African-American. She was discharged in 2008.

In addition to money, Chapman agreed to revise its policies on discrimination and take other steps under a two-year consent decree.

In a statement, Chapman says the suit had no merit and a federal court dismissed it two years ago. However, the EEOC appealed and the university says it decided not to spend more time and money on the case.
