Guest Post: Death of a Soul On Campus – Worst Professor Ever

I find this guest post on “Worst Professor Ever” really interesting. Cannot help but wonder about what some of the underlying causes might be for her experience: is it the kind of campus? the region of the country? her previous experience at a more welcoming place? In any case, it should give us all something to think about when it comes to our quality of life in our jobs.

    Thanks for reading and sharing, Jessica. If I had a nickel for every hour my partner and I spent trying to figure out “why” the campus was the way it was, and why our personal experience of it was the way it was, I would no longer have to work at all. It was a consuming preoccupation to try and understand the underlying causes. We never succeeded, though. Region, previous expectations…for sure, all played a role. Now I do know some clues though, for evaluating a campus environment. I’ll be sharing those on The Professor Is In. Good luck with tenure! Be sure and get in touch if you need any advice on that! 🙂
