UCLA's operating motto: Let there be NO light on how UCLA abuses its students.

This website, UCLA: Student Info, is about how UCLA is "weeding out" students—i.e., terminating their student status—by abusing its power.  You learn how UCLA is abusing its students from statements made by UCLA faculty members on my termination from a Ph.D. program in the UCLA Graduate School of Education & Information Studies (GSE&IS).

 

UCLA faculty statements on a UCLA student termination

"[N]either of us had been asked for any background on Mr. Wilde's case.  Nor apparently was much effort taken to verify the apparent facts of Mr. Wilde's academic record.  Incompletes that had been cleared were listed as Fs and no enquiries about their real status or about the student's general progress were made." 

Dr. Nicholas Blurton-Jones & Dr. Val Rust;  UCLA Graduate School of Education & Information Studies

"The case is clear-cut: they had no basis for dismissing you as you met the formal qualifications.  Moreover, they gave you no other reasons, so any further reasons they give now are beside the point.  All this is obvious.  I have no difficulty saying it forcefully to anyone.  The difficulty will be to force them to reverse themselves due to their unjust decision."

Dr. Robert Brenner; UCLA Department of History

"[A] random collection of faculty (however distinguished) has no status within the university power structure.  No one would be obliged to pay any attention to us."

UCLA Distinguished Professor, Dr. Edward Keenan; UCLA Department of Linguistics

 

"This [UCLA student termination] is a wrong to right."

Statement made by Dr. Val Rust to Dr. Robert Brenner

""If you apply for [re]admission, the dept [UCLA Graduate School of Education] has to consider your case, so the faculty member you mentioned might be able to push for readmission without the dept having to acknowledge any wrongdoing."

UCLA Distinguished Professor, Dr. Edward Keenan; UCLA Department of Linguistics
