Other reports include an administrator saying the school is ‘going to hire the most qualified candidates’ and a professor saying it was ‘challenging’ to speak to someone without an interpreter

In December of last year, a professor at the University of Illinois-Chicago set up a GroupMe chat room for students of his to ask questions about an upcoming assignment for which students had to write a five to seven page paper about some aspect of technology.

“Can it literally be any technology?” one student asked. “I’m scared I’m gonna pick something everyone’s doing.”

“Uh, I mean, im hoping you’re not starting your final paper right now as it’s due pretty soon,” the professor responded. “It doesn’t matter if you pick something other people pick.”

“Okay. And life gets in the way sometimes,” the student answered.

Eighteen minutes later, the concerned professor responded, citing the late date. “The paper is due tomorrow at midnight. I look forward to reading everyone’s papers!”

“Yes I know. I don’t think I said anything bad,” the student responded. “I was just trying to ask a question.”
