Things Senior Faculty Do

Remember those blogs, Stuff White People Do and Stuff White People Like? They were funny and revealing. I am irritated at some people and just had a blog idea: things senior faculty do.

One of these things involves attempts at policing newer people in what are not always the most evolved of ways. I wonder if I even want to work in higher education with colleagues who would treat others with such disdain and disrespect is the relevant comment.

Another is speaking in a certain tone. This is one of the things they do which most annoy me. They give patronizing advice which willfully ignores the expertise and experience of their interlocutors and is not even advice but is a form of the policing mentioned above.
