Earning a college degree has always been a dream of mine. Growing up in a Christian single parent home and watching my mother sacrifice for my sister and I always made me strive to do my best and to achieve high. Taught to always trust and keep God first. This scholarship would help with tuition and books toward the college that I am chosen to attend. I would be the first to earn a degree in my family. Any money offered or awarded to me would be greatly appreciated to help with my college expenses. Thank you for this opportunity.

Student Sends Flirtatious, Then Menacing Emails to Professor

April 3, 2018

by Susan Dutca

A professor at the University of California at Santa Cruz believed she was "unstalkable" up until a student of hers began sending messages that were at first flirtatious and ultimately turned to threats of rape and murder. Much of the #MeToo conversation in higher education revolves around educators who "harass" or "target" students; but some educators themselves actually become vulnerable to harassment by their own students and remain silent out of a sense of guilt, embarrassment, and often the fear of losing their jobs.
