ACADEMIA’S LACK OF RESPECT FOR DIVERSITY chases out another mind:
As many of you already know, I decided to derail my plan to get a PhD at ASU and instead switched a Master’s program that I will graduate from this month. Naturally, there were numerous reasons for making this decision, among them my mental health and my relationship with Brendan. But those paramount concerns, topped with a hostile academic environment, chased me away from the ivory tower.
