What Every Target of Workplace Bullying Needs to Know

Many students are attempting to take Dr. Rosenberg for public speaking. It is well known that all his courses are immediately filled and at best you can only get in with a special permission number. He rates 4.9 on ratemyprofssor out of a 5.0 and after 24 yrs of teaching as a part time lecturer he is getting the RU screw.

Because he is outspoken and does not grade harshly, he has been harassed and bullied by members of the communication Department and he will probably not be teaching at RU again. Suggest you call the communications office if you wish to take public speaking and say you want to take him as an instructor. As students, we must take actions that best suit our academic interest.

Dr. Rosenberg will make sure we learn the hands on practical tools for public speaking and has refused to be bogged down with the trivial problems that has plagued academia. Despite service to this university for the past two decades, Dr. Rosenberg's treatment by the department has been appalling. Several students even heard a Dean's verbal assault on Dr. Rosenberg during a meeting.

Dr.Rosenberg's insistence on evaluating students based on their individual academic merit as opposed to an subjective departmental curve is in our best interest. Dr. Rosenberg individually caters to the needs of each student and has an unwavering commitment to the success of those he teaches. We must take a stand and let our voices be heard. If we cannot take Dr. Rosenberg as a teacher, we will collectively refuse to take the Public Speaking course.

By now there is only a very slim chance I will be teaching in the fall at Rutgers. When anyone writes to the Communication department the standard answer is "this is a personnel matter." They have circled the wagons and cannot even remember what they said. First I was told I was not teaching this summer because last year there was not enough of an enrollment. I have enough students to fill a class. Then I found out from the teacher who is teaching my summer class that he was asked to teach a "hybrid." the chairman is paid to communicate with staff; she has never responded to any of my inquiries. We are dealing with egos who will never admit that they were rude or harassed anyone. As tenured professors they feel they can do what they want. Now the story is that they are reorganizing the department and hiring full time teachers and doctoral students to teach. if anyone is not being renewed e mail me chaimdov@aol.com. The newspapers will do a story
The union says I have no rights since I am a mere part time lecturer. Go on Google and read about the feelings of PTLs vs. Tenured professors. This is no longer about me but rather the principle of the matter. A person teaching for two decades should not be treated like trash. As a clergyman my reputation is well known; I do not lie or tell false stories. Shame on all of them.
