1/ WARNING: POSSIBLE TRIGGER LANGUAGE, EVENTS or SITUATIONS
Read sad story last night about Dr. Bucci, 50 year old Phychology & Brain Sciences Dept. Chairman, at Dartmouth that committed #Suicide 11 months after a lawsuit was filed by graduate #students in his department. He
2/ was NOT accused of sexual misconduct, but named in the suit for knowing about the professors’ inappropriate behavior as the Chair.I share many of the same feelings he expressed to friends and colleagues in his emails before he took his own life like: the case was deeply
3/ personal; reputation had been damaged; physical health diminished; false portrayal of his actions; being blamed unfairly; allegations & process “unfair”; how can they ever undo what they did to me & #wronglyaccused. Similarly, how I had reported the #disability

1/ Before I start getting bombarded by feminist groups for promoting Title IX Attorney’s wouldn’t you like to know my views or opinion before you rush to judgment about what I believe? For the conspiracy feminist’s the answer is NO I have never been accused of anything
2/ resembling a Title IX or rape charge. However, through my personal experiences I can identify and understand the pain caused for families and students have surrounding #falseallegations, inherent problems and frustrations working with uncooperative #Education & #HigherEd
3/ officials, the ludicrous Kangaroo disciplinary hearings our youth are put thru, the frustration of trying to explain to someone without lived experience what you or child needs help with or support with that does not exactly match up with what is in the four corners of the

I had a follower DM me asking why I was excited and “Celebrating” having the Elite Title IX attorney’s following my story. Not wanting to get in an argument, I thanked her and said I would spend some time thinking about her question & send a message out in the group sharing my
perspective. My reasons are fairly simple! First, this group of attorneys, accused student warriors and their supportive family members following my #twitterfeed are amazing. This group together BLAZED a TRAIL & SHINED a LIGHT on #Colleges & #Universities denial of #DueProcess &
#UnFairHearings. #HigherEd Schools have been denying students #fundamentalfairness for years. So without these attorney’s, brave student warriors & supportive families determined to prove their #innocence there would be very little protections for me now as I take the next step

Any political endorsement from from me is not easy to get and must be earned. Those that know me well that in the upcoming 2020 Presidential Election my original endorsement was:

#AnyoneButTrump2020

I am firm believer everyone has right to their own opinion, how they choose to
live their life is their business, not my place or role to judge other choices, and I am not always right needing seeking to understand. Regarding supporting Trump I just do NOT UNDERSTAND. I have some good friends that really respect and believe are so smart that are on the
Trump Bandwagon. Thru all my questions and conversations I have come to conclusion they do not support Trump as a President it is more about the message, things they believe need to change, and ideals of the conservative party. I may not agree, but at least I can at least

@Help4StudentsUK @1752Group @NotOnMyCampusUK It is very unfortunate and without any sanctions, penalties, or dismissal for University Administrators false allegations it allows them run a muck without worry for ruining a young persons life.

In some ways I am glad this happened to me as 50 year old non-traditional student.
@Help4StudentsUK @1752Group @NotOnMyCampusUK I could not imagine if one of my much younger classmates lives were ruined. Most my classmates where around the same age as my oldest child. Unfortunately, I live with bipolar, general anxiety, panic anxiety disorder, depression and ADD. Being falsely accused of something so
@Help4StudentsUK @1752Group @NotOnMyCampusUK against what you believe and your character is exhausting. The decision two weeks before finals was to begin sent me into a terrible tailspin I had not experienced since major depression in 2013. I never wanted to visit that darkness again & yet there I was. Luckily starting to

Sorry I never anticipated this much when I started by now have gone this far I am going to finish so thanks and appreciate the patience and willingness to listen. Continuing from last slide & have retweeted that chain below.
Honor Board never saw a CV or approved the witness as expert so impossible to allow a “substitute” expert. Bringing up again how prejudicial allowing the deceased written testimony is to the student when not allowed to cross examine. In addition, the student explained an expert
was not needed to explain or discuss how software was supposed to work because everyone was familiar and stipulated to that fact. The
proposed “substitute” expert was not expericienced in programming, coding, problems with software, or changes made since problem happened. The

Replying to @DrCastner in this thread about how Universities should be part of the solution. First, it is amazing to me how progressive Europe is on so many things compared to US with orgs like @officestudents, @Help4StudentsUK, @1752Group & @NotOnMyCampusUK holding accountable
In May 2019 as 49 year old non-traditional @DrakeLawSchool student I was accused of academic misconduct for cheating. In reality, targeted as a student with disabilities fighting for my and other students #civilrights. You can read various posts on my feed so will not go into all
the details. When getting stonewalled by Drake Law School over #Accommodations, #Discrimination & no #Investigation being done on complaints filed. I started reaching out to @DrakeUniversity Leadership including @drakepresident. This all fell on deaf ears & 2 days before written
