Depraved Professor at Michigan State University
The Michigan State University School of Social Work gained a bad reputation from people like John Herrick. John Herrick is the Associate Director of a program in which administrators have a self-serving agenda which they promote at all costs. Similar to a big city restaurant that operates illegal activities in the back, the School of Social Work has an agenda far different from their stated goals, objectives, and purpose. They present an image of being for social work values and for social justice. The reality is they have an agenda of rollbacks in which professors use university money to take expensive and unnecessary vacations. The Director of the School of Social Work used to be a figurehead named Marilyn Flynn, but was replaced by another figurehead named Gary Anderson. This is a guise because John Herrick is the ring leader of this corrupt bunch. John Herrick navigates this pack of grifters through a whole series of unscrupulous and unethical acts, the likes of which are beyond comparison in higher education. John Herrick is out of control and there is no limit on his indulgence. Confronting him, in fact, only elicits arrogant snobbery as he nefariously crinkles his nose and thrusts it upward and away with a leering cockiness. He trumpets and parades his base reputation with such a smug air of confidence that he caricatures himself. John Herrick will falsify documents, backdate letters, and engage in slander to maximize his outcomes. Hurting students is by far the most egregious of John Herrick's acts. John Herrick will blacklist students who raises a voice against his corrupt practices and then torpedo their chances of success. Minority students are the most likely to fall victim to his dishonesty. John Herrick's vacations are probably the most visible example of his wrongdoing. These vacations are arrangements in which MSU money is bankrolled into a members-only slush fund used for John Herrick and his cronies to take lavish and exorbitant vacations to other countries. The overhead costs are outrageous and stand in opposition to the values and mission of social work. John Herrick will act upright and polite in the first weeks of the semester, when students are still considering their enrollment, but this innocuous facade manifests itself into something dirty and ugly as the semester progresses. One eventually sees professors and administrators choosing favorites and treating many students like dirt. Some students experience dirty looks and utterances of contempt. Others experience unfair academic advising and some are completely rubbed out of the program. John Herrick heads a program full of unprofessionalism, misappropriation, and flagrancy which should be avoided at all costs.
