Who was behind the terminations in LAD?

Now let’s take a minute and think. Who could have wanted all those specific people from the Liberal Arts Department to go? Who was the person who was the most endangered by what they all knew about him/her?

The ex-head of LAD had specific reasons to let these people go. All of them knew how badly she was managing the English language courses. All of them were witnesses of how by her fault there were two courses in English with exactly the same content, exactly the same book, and exactly the same assignments but with a different number of credit hours. All of them were also witnesses of the massive grade curves given to students in these English classes. Some of them even had refused to give those curves! She had an interest in terminating them. They also were involved with the Phoenix show which cost AUM millions because someone from Procurement (probably middle managers along with the Lebanese Chief of Security) was stealing money by having secret agreements with the external providers of services. They all needed someone to blame.

The current head of LAD gave even more massive grade curves. Why is this? Because the students have low English level. Everyone knows that he was the ex-head of EPP and that the program he prepared is his. It is a new program that he created, along with Mohaned who knows nothing about teaching English, and if the students are worse, it follows that either AUM accepts anybody or the program is no longer working. AUM claim that they have strict entry tests and criteria. Then, it is the fault of the preparatory program. How to better cover that than by terminating those who know of this and had proof that something the boss designed is not working? AUM would rather terminate than admit their mistakes.

What about the two coordinators in LAD? Each of them a worse liar than the other. The coordinator of English is reported to have regularly lied about what one of the terminated faculty would say to him. He would report wrongfully to his superiors about that person. AUM News Weekly received a report from someone currently in the Liberal Arts Department who says:

“Both coordinators are scared of their own shadows and will lie about anything to cover up their own mistakes. Dr Xxxxxx made us re-grade over 600 papers and stay over time when he himself went out to have dinner with his family. They never paid us this over time when we were staying the night. We were re-grading the papers of someone who had decided to give all students random grades.” Why was this person not terminated right there and then? Why were all the ethical faculty terminated? Why those who would read pages and pages of essays within those unrealistic 72 hours they get for grading exams? Why not this person who just decided to give any grade that came to mind? Is it maybe because that person is friends with the ex-LAD school headmistress who was only fit for showing people who dared have an opinion the CVs of potential candidates to replace them?

The truth is, after their third or fourth year at AUM, people start knowing too much because they have seen how unethical the place is. These people become uncomfortable for the management and they are terminated one by one if they do not go by themselves. AUM does everything to encourage them to leave by isolating them, stressing them out, pressurizing them and scaring them. Make no mistake in thinking that if there are not enough people at the university, they will keep you because they need you. They will not keep you if they suddenly find out how you believe that what they think they do right is wrong in reality.

Letting people go without reason at AUM means that these people were doing something right. Everyone who remains is either someone who has avoided communicating with anyone or someone who has repeatedly backstabbed everyone else.
