If you prefer a shorter summary of the past decade of financial and bureaucratic punishments, pedagogical failures, violations of academic freedom, verbal harassment, threats to destroy Prof. Carney's reputation via web postings and to bankrupt him with legal actions, and a variety of other forms of administrative misconduct and academic misbehavior at Boston University, see: “A Summary—Ten Years at Boston University,” available under June 2014 in the side menu on any page.
That's the BU way. If I didn't immediately comply with my Chairman's orders, my name and professional reputation would be smeared on the internet, and I would be financially destroyed and bankrupted with legal fees if I attempted to resist the administration's unilateral demands. That is the way Boston University treats its senior faculty. That is the way it enters into "negotiations" with its faculty members. B.U. administrators threaten to destroy them financially and to destroy their reputations if they hold another point of view about education. They give them drop-dead deadlines to comply with their censorship orders. These orders and the accompanying threats, it is worth mentioning, still stand to this day. Not one of them has been retracted or rescinded.
(I’ll pass over the sheer institutional stupidity and counter-productiveness of his fiat. My BU site was arguably the largest, most important, and most highly visible site by a BU faculty member. It was known all over the world, read by as many as 50,000 viewers a month, and was one of the major recruitment tools for BU’s own graduate programs. Now that it has been suspended and discontinued, all of the benefit it provided the university has, of course, been lost.)
