BROOKVILLE, N.Y. (AP) - A former adjunct professor at a Long Island university says age discrimination played a role in his and two colleagues’ termination.

Irving Gerber, who is 87, filed a complaint with state Division of Human Rights claiming Long Island University gave them no warning. The three have taught for years at the College of Education, Information and Technology at the school’s C.W. Post campus.

They say they learned about their termination after arriving on campus last January.

University officials declined to comment, citing a policy against discussing personnel matters. But it tells Newsday (https://nwsdy.li/1tQibFa ) that any allegation it would make personnel decisions based on age or any other discriminatory factor was unfounded.

The state agency says it doesn’t comment on pending cases.

The other professors are 76 and 72.
