UW-Madison failed to inform federal agency of 'abusive' professor's conduct, unpaid leave
National Science Foundation fired engineering professor Akbar Sayeed after receiving a detailed report on the toxic lab environment he oversaw.
After the article from this weekend and now this article, I cannot put into words how angry, sad, and disappointed I am with the school I have called my home for almost 10 years. We (students) trusted you
. We f*cking trusted you.
This UW Madison story is tragic, but far too common. Toxic advisors need to be removed or barred from taking students. Grad students can feel trapped, since leaving w/o PhD and switching labs are stigmatized and they need a letter of rec. We must do better
