After all of the bullshit regarding Professor Harridan, I (at the urging of damn near everyone on Facebook) contacted the Dean’s office. I figured that something as serious as accusations of harassment would be dealt with quickly. Boy, was I wrong.
I didn’t receive an e-mail until 12:30 today. The Dean’s message was curt- it amounted to “I’m sorry you feel that way, I’ll let her supervisor know (note: said supervisor was not only ONE OF THE RECIPIENTS of the message, but was specifically addressed in the message) and you are more than welcome to withdraw from the class “if you feel that way”. So, basically, I was told to go fuck myself.
I can’t simply withdraw from the class, because that will put me below the number of credits needed to receive Financial Aid. I can’t go back to class, because the professor will know that I filed a complaint about her. And honestly? I don’t really like the idea of going to a school where complaints like mine are ignored.
