The University's recent censure by the American Association of University Professors is part of a larger problem, according to biology professor Dominique Homberger, who was removed from a BIOL 1001 class in 2010 after low midterm grades and a high drop rate.

Homberger's well-publicized removal and former University director Ivor van Heerden's firing "violate academic freedoms," according to the AAUP, and are reasons for the censure.
"I feel mortified," Homberger said. "[This situation] is totally unnecessary simply because I think the administration feels they can do whatever they feel like and not listen to the faculty." After her removal, Homberger filed a complaint with the Faculty Grievance Committee, which voted unanimously in her favor, but the University took no action to resolve the issue, according to Homberger.
She said many faculty members and other professors around the country voiced their support for her and said they were also facing pressure from administrators to give good grades, "or else."
"The problem we have now is that non-educators have the impression that the grades a student earns are a reflection of the quality of the teacher," Homberger said.
...
Homberger agreed, saying there were documents that showed Martin never responded to invitations to meet with the AAUP.
...
"To pretend…that nobody talked to him, this is disingenuous," Homberger said.
...
Cope also said the situations with van Heerden and Homberger were handled appropriately - once they came into the public light.
...
Homberger also criticized the University for taking the censure lightly.
"I consider censure a catastrophe," she said. "I'm not very happy about it at all."
