I just want to remind everyone about the uvic ombudsperson. She helps students deal with issues between students and faculty members. I nearly totally broke down today because I was, out of my control, late for a class and the professor decided to punish me by making my assignment due today instead of thursday. A total breach of the course policy. The ombudsperson helped me go through my course policy handouts and advised me on a way to diplomatically approach the chair of the department and the professor again, to explain my situation. Everything got sorted out in a positive way in the end.|
If you ever think you're being treated unfairly by a professor, you don't need to just take it because "they have power and we don't".
