In which the Registrar plays the safety card

It was only a matter of time. Go back and read the Registrar's original indictment of me. I'm rude, disrespectful, dominating, you name it. But there's nothing about me being dangerous, is there? What about that bit about me being "prone to personal attacks on students and professors"? I think if they had meant physical attacks, they would have been a little more specific, wouldn't they? No matter. Now my presence in class has become a safety concern:

Dear Marty,

My purpose is to ensure a safe learning environment for all students, including you, and to ensure the opportunity for student success, including yours. The allegations that have been made attest to perceptions of you that have developed in the minds of some of your instructors and peers, as well as staff and administration at your practicum placement. If those perceptions are based on malice or erroneous assumptions I need to counter-act them in order to restore your standing and reputation. Point 1 below indicates to me that you have your own perceptions, and counter-allegations against those instructors and peers, and I would very much like to hear your account. I will go into the detail of allegations in our meeting as pertinent, and I will be happy to hear details of your allegations, but the point of the meeting is to have a general discussion about this matter so I can fully understand the situation. An innovative solution such as a transfer to the Access program is an interesting one, and I reiterate that I am committed to seeing how you can complete your educational goals, as well as ensuring a safe learning environment for you and everybody else. I again request that you meet with me immediately in order that we can address this matter. Tomorrow, Wednesday, I am currently available between 11:30 and 2:00.

Best wishes,


So the Registrar wants to hear my side of the story so he can restore my standing and reputation for me. I hate to tell him, but that's my job, not his. God help me if I was stupid enough to rely on the Registrar to restore my reputation.
