Dr. Bernhard Rosenberg
by Concerned Students
(Edison, NJ, USA)
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.
