How You Can Help
American People, I need your help to stop academic bullying by professors and administrators. Although academic bullying occurs in educational institutions across America, no federal law directly addresses it. A study by two college professors at Indiana State University, Roberts-Pittman and Macdonald (2011) found that “almost 15 percent [of the college students participating in the study] reported seeing a professor bully a student, while four percent reported that they had been bullied by a professor” (para. 10). You can help by bringing an end to the “culture of silence,” on campuses that allows the “imbalance of power” to cover up or gloss over acts that are detrimental to student success. You can help by:
1. Walking with me from Nashville, Tennessee to Washington, DC (665miles) to deliver a letter to President Obama informing him that Dr. Jacobs, President of the University of Toledo, has allowed professors and administrators, Drs. Mary Ellen Edwards, Svetlana Beltyukova, Revathy Kumar, Penny Poplin Gosetti, in the University’s Judith Herb College of Education, Health Science and human Service, Department of Educational Foundations and Leadership program, to deprive me of my right to an education via academic bullying (course fraud, abusive language, and scientific misconduct). The walk will begin Saturday, May 18, 2013 (place and time to be determined - see the anti-academic bullying justice walk pull down).
2. Asking quantitative and qualitative research experts to examine my research paper (dissertation) regarding my allegations of course fraud, abusive language and scientific misconduct by professors/administrators at the University of Toledo.
3. Writing letters, making calls and sending emails to President Barak Obama; Attorney General Eric Holder – Department of Justice; and University of Toledo President, Dr. Lloyd Jacobs and ask for an investigation of my allegations of academic bullying.
4. Helping to make the pull down, “dissertation defense mockery,” into a play for presentation to the general public.
5. Purchasing a book to help defray anti-academic bullying campaign costs. Book proceeds will be used to support the anti-academic bullying campaign and to help bullying victims and those who bully receive psychological help.
6. Helping to set-up seminars about professor/administrator-to-student academic bullying.
7. Sending in your professor/administrator-to-student academic bullying story. If chosen, your story will become part of a book.
8. Telling someone about my website, www.bulliesintheivorytower.org.
9. Helping someone who is being bullied academically, psychologically, physically or any other way.
10. Attending and/or participating in upcoming events.
11. Requesting me to speak about professor/administrator-to-student academic bullying.
