In the example above, who is in the right, who is in the wrong and what would be the responsibility of a moral philosopher at USC to speak out regarding the ethics of the situation.

For this to even be possible, the university administration must have thoroughly disclaimed the values of reason and evidence, harm and intent. But, you raised the contingencies of that particular university so the answer must depend on variables like what people legitimately agreed to when they applied, whether for a job or as a student.

That particularity aside, they're acting counter-productively to every good thing a university does for society and should be shot.

"Anything that seems similar to anything problematic, to anyone, is problematic." is literal insanity.
