What Every Target of Workplace Bullying Needs to Know

Evil Lecturers

by Genia

I was bullied by a lecturer, since the first day. The most traumatising part was telling another lecturer and finding out that that he saw it as totally normal. "But the person is wild and evil", I said to him. He assured me it's normal. People then thought I was in love with this lecturer because I told him about it and not someone else. I thought he was a very logical and approachable man, but I was wrong. Very wrong. News of me being frightened of the wild lecturer spread, and some people scared me to "test" me. I have nothing left to say to anyone about the matter accept what Jesus said whilst he was cricified:

"Forgive them God, for they know not what they do".

I was a brilliant student topping the lists, and I feel betrayed. I had never been bullied so viciously before, my school was too good to have bullies around. But I remain strong, and at least I don't have it on my conscience that I bullied people like that. I will never stoop so low. Maybe that's why people hate me so much. Good Luck.

I have a course coordinator who is bullying me in my nursing course. She has made it her duty to personally assess me and comes to my nursing prac nearly everyday. This is unusual as we are usually assessed by our clinical supervisor. I complained about her by email to another lecturer. I was assessed by other lecturers and was going ok but then the course coordinator came back in and started picking on my work and failed me.

I can empathise with your story, as I was a victim of bullying from an educated (female) lecturer. I have come to the conclusion that they are a very funny breed, who often seem unable to tolerate other people's ideas. They exist out of the normal workplace. Cribbing of ideas is another practice that goes on. They are adept at using arguments through practice, and are 'politically correct', compared to the layperson. The person I encountered was very abrasive, with a powerful personality. The work environment is fluid in a University, with few quality checks being made.
They can often impress on a younger person who has left home, and try to psychologically dominate them. They have access to personal records, which can facilitate that form of mild abuse.
They 'close rank' when a complaint is made, occupying a sacred position. You are certainly not alone.

I think I am being bullied by about 3 lecturers, its horrible, it started with 1 and then I stuffed up at uni due to the effect of bullying on mental health and ended up with more lecturers that just seem to have a hatred of me. There honestly is nothing that you can do in these situations, because as soon as you tell a staff member at the university, they then hate you as well. I was a very good student but unfortunately the bullying is affecting my academic performance. I am so disappointed at these lecturers, they are suppose to want to see their students succeed with their career goals, especially the ones that work really hard.

I was bullied severely at uni also (by staff). It starts when you lodge a complaint for unfair treatment. From there one lecturer or head of school will talk to others. Before long the entire faculty is doing what they can to academically and emotionally cripple you.
Options are to keep trying even though it is highly likely you will be made to fail no matter what effort you put in or.. sadly quit.

Bully lecturor failing me three times

I have a lecturer making my life hell. She has failed me for this unit 3 times now or is about to fail me for the third time.
I am a carer of a child who has a severe disability and is half blind and has just had major surgery. I'm not finding the games this lecturer is playing amusing.
I don't think the student guild are taking it seriously, I'm just so sad that somebody could be empty and heartless.
