Academic Freedom

I had a prof outright tell me I was wrong to my face, and he then proceeded to belittle me and my opinion in front of everyone. I was not prepared for that, and I am not even sure I could adequately debate him even if I was prepared, but that didn’t seem like the right way to make a point to me. Am I being overly sensitive?


Student Affairs: You should always feel free to speak with your professor outside of class, share your perspective and seek better interactions in the future. If this isn't an option, doesn't adequately address the situation, or you need help with finding your voice, contact the Department Head or the Dean's office at your college. You could also reach out to Student Care and Advocacy.
