On a positive side, I’m attending a mandatory meeting where we are told that we must stop complaining about students who hold different political beliefs. “It’s unprofessional to persecute students because you disagree with them,” we are told. “Stop telling us a student is racist or homophobic. It’s not your job to judge their beliefs.”
Obviously, this didn’t just happen. A brave student sued the university for First Amendment violations, and a federal district court recently ruled that her lawsuit has merit and can proceed.
I never thought I’d use the words “positive” and “mandatory meeting” in the same sentence.
