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 in 2006 because she is African-American. The university discharged her in 2008.

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

A call to a media representative at Chapman wasn't immediately returned.
