So this happened today in class, a girl had her feet up and the professor called the police after calling our class uncivil 😬 pic.twitter.com/spq0ShXiFU— Apurva Rawal (@ApurvaYRawal) November 12, 2018
The class before this professor went on a whole tirade about how uncivil we all were because a few students were on their phone or not paying attention, cutting lecture time for the rest of us because her ego was bruised— Apurva Rawal (@ApurvaYRawal) November 12, 2018
I chose to attend this university because of it's welcoming and inclusive atmosphere, and today's events genuinely make me concerned for not only my fellow students, but any future roadrunners that may choose to attend this institution in the future— Apurva Rawal (@ApurvaYRawal) November 12, 2018
This is me in Anita Moss’ 2053 Bio classroom. Upon entering class I was told I needed to leave or would be escorted out by officers, I never disobeyed the student code of conduct. Not once. A police report is being filed atm, this is just the beginning. Thanks for your support! https://t.co/YUZGmwgFa7— pistachio 🍂🍁 (@FavoritePaigeee) November 12, 2018
COS Interim Dean Howard Grimes and I both are aware of the video that was taken in a biology classroom earlier today. Creating a classroom environment that is conducive to learning is our priority, so we too are concerned and will respond accordingly when we learn more. #utsa— Kimberly Andrews Espy (@ProvostEspy) November 12, 2018
The fact that a professor would have a student removed from class when she clearly isn’t being a disruption to the learning environment or her (lack of) lecturing is COMPLETELY unjustified. @UTSA y’all need to do better. This professor needs to be handled accordingly. https://t.co/uWJ98xkDnm— 🌻🌻🌻 (@_DezMonique) November 12, 2018
This is my A&P class. All of this happened for something so minuscule. We have a test Wednesday and instead of reviewing, our class was cancelled. https://t.co/ijGoGvg8Dd— yasmine 🌻 (@YasmineReneXo) November 12, 2018
