Earlier this week I as dealing with one of the receptionists outside the Principal’s office, acquiring a copy of a recently published book by my colleague Donald Preece on the pipe organs of east London. The Vice-Principal (Science and Engineering) came out of an office to talk to another receptionist, and would not make eye contact with me.
Some time ago, my access from the College publications list was removed. Later, I found I was having great difficulty getting access to the student database (no small matter since I was teaching a module with 280 students at the time).
When the School tried to pay me for teaching this module, they discovered that my details had been deleted by the Finance office, and I had to submit bank details and NI number all over again.
Today I have been removed from the department’s academic staff list.
I still have my office, and my College login and email still work, but for how much longer?
