Open Letter to Colleagues Who Sent Three Students Who Failed an Assignment into My Classroom to Tape This Colleague and to Recruit Students for a Bogus CUNY Complaint Proceedure

Part 1

This is what the AAUP said:

Dear Gregg Morris,

Thank you for your inquiry, which has been forwarded to me.  Since we do not have data regarding abuse of student complaints against faculty members, I can only say anecdotally that such accounts do cross my desk on occasion.  More often, we see administrators eager to use the student complaint process against a faculty member whom they perceive as troublesome.

Academic Freedom, Free Speech and First Amendment Rights Under Siege in the Department of Film and Media Studies?

Hunter College Threatens Disciplinary Action Against Tenured Journalism Professor Because of Exposés About Academic Corruption & Debauchery

Tuesday, April 11th, 2017

The threat is revealed in this copy of a letter below, a response to the Chair of the Department of Film and Media Studies, Jay Roman, who was a messenger for the threat.

April 7
Jay,

This is a response to your November 11 letter. It shouldn’t be confused with that request you repeated at the November 7 meeting for me to contact Hunter Attorney Sandra Nunez. In this April 7 message to you, I address the saber rattling about “disciplinary action.”

The following action would much better serve the truth because it would be nonpartisan, impartial and independent as well as free of the department’s rank nepotism and cronyism and any Administration imprudence, and it would be transparent. Hunter is accountable to certain city, state and federal agencies. An investigation by such an agency, besides the benefits described, could require statements given under oath.

[Note: Regarding Hunter Attorney Sandra Nunez who emailed me April 10, Monday; see below. I have no idea what she means.
