Please take a few minutes to read a few of the links about the ongoing battle between St. Louis University and Dr. Avis Meyer, longtime and well-loved adviser to the University News, tenured faculty member, everyone’s favorite movie critic, and the best Communication professor currently at SLU.
The way Dr. Meyer has been treated is unacceptable at a Jesuit-Catholic institution. Actually, SLU isn’t operated by a religious creed anymore, is it? Sold that for $8 million, didn’t they? Aw, shucks. Well, regardless, it’s unacceptable behavior at ANY institution of higher learning.
If you’ve written a letter to the administration and the St. Louis media and would like it posted here, send me an e-mail or comment on the blog. We will be setting up a fund for the legal fees Dr. Meyer has incurred fighting this ridiculous lawsuit (whether he likes it or not).
Feel free to vent your frustrations here and let it be known that alumni, faculty, students and the community will not stand for this flagrant abuse of power.
