(b) that, in matters involving promotion, tenure, non-reappointment, termination or salary, there has been discrimination against the faculty member on account of his or her age, sex, race, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, non-disqualifying disability, or other characteristic protected by applicable law;
(c) that there has been a significant violation of procedures related to decisions affecting promotion, tenure, non-reappointment, termination or salary; and or
(d) that the faculty member's academic freedom has been violated.
