Earth and Environmental Science Dept. Described As Toxic by Evaluators

BROOKLYN COLLEGE — According to documents obtained by the Vanguard, an outside evaluation of the Earth and Environmental Sciences Department at Brooklyn College (EES) described the department as a “toxic environment.”

The evaluation of EES, which is conducted every ten years, and last year by two professors from SUNY Buffalo and Penn State University, contains several instances of student testimony describing the department as “polarized and punitive; like a schoolyard with a bully contingent.”
