Students at Emory are being very Orwellian:
We demand that the faculty evaluations that each student is required to complete for each of their professors include at least two open-ended questions such as: “Has this professor made any microaggressions towards you on account of your race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, language, and/or other identity?” and “Do you think that this professor fits into the vision of Emory University being a community of care for individuals of all racial, gender, ability, and class identities?”
I’d be screwed with a provision like this because of the “language microaggression” that I commit in every class I teach. And as for providing care, even the words make me cringe.
Emory’s administration is, of course, happy to oblige because this is a great tool for abusing and exploiting faculty members. This is playing right into the corporate administrators’ hands, just like all of these bratty protests.
