“Being Mean in Academe”

Here is an article found on twitter through @chronicle about how some academics are not always the nicest when it comes to criticising their students’ work/plans or younger academics. I often found that many of the professors inside my faculty were condescending with students, even if deep down they were sometimes trying to make a good point (though not always!). It should be obvious that the role of professors and senior academics is to support and guide rather than compete and put down!
