Like my faculty colleagues – particularly Professors Colin Fewer and Alan Spector – I too am concerned about abuse of students by faculty. It is simply unconsciousable that any faculty would ever have a political perspective that differs from their students or from the majority of other faculty members. It is so wrong to offend anyone in America.
So, to all you students who feel as if you have been offended (particularly you Evangelical Christians – we all know how your world views are de-valued on a university campus) – please feel free to send me your anonymous audio tapes (edited, unedited – who cares) whenever you think your professors have said anything you deem crazy or inappropriate. I will gladly post them at my website. Did not get the crazy and/or inappropriate comments on tape? No problem. Just send me an email telling me what was said by whom, when, and where (what class, etc.) and I will post that information.
Remember, this in particular involves professors teaching inappropriate topics. These are such things as politics in an english class, or the environment in a spanish class, or global warming in a sociology class, etc.
Do your professors not give you enough work? Do you think they grade too easily, too harshly? What rumors have you heard about your professors? I will share your anonymous comments with the world! Just send them in. I will publicly post the Professor, the class and all pertinent information – while making sure you, the student, remain anonymous.
Professors Fewer and Spector have made it very clear that it is all of our jobs to help students in this manner, and I intend to do my part. And – do not worry – this is all anonymous.
