Dr. Amie Wolf, an adjunct professor in the Faculty of Education, is asking for an apology from the administration saying they’ve made an error, and for greater change.

Dr. Amie Wolf, an Indigenous adjunct professor in the Faculty of Education, is alleging the university deleted administrator-approved interim reports of students that were transferred out of her class last fall.

Wolf alleges that, in a January 14 meeting with Faculty Interim Dean Dr. Marianne McTavish, Teaching Education Office Director John Yamamoto and a representative from the President’s Office, McTavish told Wolf that she had deleted the interim reports on file and asked Wolf to do the same. Wolf said no.

The President’s Office had allegedly received an email from a parent of one of the students. Wolf wrote in an email — sent to The Ubyssey by two sources — that she was told by McTavish that a parent wrote “an anonymous letter complaining about [her] ‘excessively harsh’ feedback on a Discussion Board, which some of you found to be ‘publicly humiliating.’” Wolf said that she was told the parent feared for their child’s future employment opportunities.
