    Not Preparing Students for Harsh Realities of Real World

    • Work/Life Balance
    Current Employee - SIS Instructor  in  Washington, DC
    Current Employee - SIS Instructor in Washington, DC

    Pros

    Decent programs and a broad selection of interests. Heavily caters to the international studies school.

    Cons

    The students are very entitled and Deans will intefere with teaching if a student complains loud enough. Space is usually at a premium.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let students fail if they do not show up to class or do not do any work. If you coddle them with leniency then you are crippling them.
