FROM Ruben Safir
SUBJECT Subject: [Hangout-NYLXS] LIU Brooklyn Lock Out
September 8th, 2016

Linette Williams
Assistant Dean
Public Administration and Information Sciences
Long Island University
1 University Plaza (Dekalb Ave and Flatbush Ave)

Dear Linette

Last night, on the first night of classes, I met our new professor,
Kiichi Takeuchi, for the advanced topic of Parallel Programming, which
is described in the Graduate School bulletin as follows:


A study of parallel random access machine (PRAM)
model, as well as processor organizations and
parallel architectures. Design, analysis and
implementation of parallel algorithms are studied.
Case studies of parallel algorithms in various
problem domains are examined. An introduction
is made to fault tolerant computing. Students are
required to do assignments using a parallel
extension of the C language such as C*, nCUBE C
or C-LINDA.
The pre-requisites of CS 631 and CS 641 are
required.
Credits: 3


This is a standard advanced topic on Computer Sciences and I was very
excited to take this class as it would open whole new paths of expertise
and learning for myself. Mr Takeuchi, however, started teaching a
completely different course, on distributive programming with a python
model in a “web browser”, which is completely unrelated to parallel
algorithms and PRAM. It is related to web programming, such as might be
rolled out in a typical 6 month technical school. He has never taken a
class on Parallel Programming, and he has never done any systems
analysis of work with parallel programming and he is not completely
familiar with the concept or topic. So he pivoted to a different
subject and is teaching it at the level of an associates degree canidate.

Please fix this.

As you know, I’m in the last stages of my masters degree program. I was
originally recruited by you and my personal faith in you drew me into
the school when at that point, I had already made plans for other
academic pursuits. This gentleman, who graduated LIU with a masters
degree, on further discussion after class, is also assigned to the
Software Development Project course CS691. That class is described in
the bulletin as follows:

CS 691 Software Development Project
The development of a large software systems project
based on a current analysis and design paradigm
resulting in a valid and verified software system.
The application domain and the course syllabus are
made available in the preceding semester. The
completion of the degree core requirements is
required.
Pre-requisites of CS 631, CS 633, CS 643, CS 645,
CS649 and CS 666 are required.


He has already told me that he has no intention of teaching this class
as a graduate level either, and is intending to break it up to smaller
projects, much of which will be based on specialized commercial tools
d’jour, for mobile phone applications. That would be the description
for the type of into to programming class that Dr Ghriger teaches for
first year students, building quick and dirty business applications for
the iphone. That is not Graduate School level work either.

Furthermore, he said to me that my expectations are too high and that
I’m in the wrong school, and I should have gone to PolyTech, because
this school doesn’t teach this kind of material, despite the fact that
this material is plain as daylight described as such in the LIU Graduate
School bulletin, a copy of which I download this morning and can
provide for you, if you need it.

I find this last part particularly distressing. I’ve heard variations
of this even before the current lock out and faculty dispute. I’ve had
to lobby hard, and work with staff to raise expectations of the faculty
and the students. Getting the Parallel Programming class back on the
schedule was part of the outcome, and two years of relationship building
and collegiate development among students and staff has been kicked out
the door just as the fruits of my academic career is finishing up.
Sending us an unqualified lecturer on Graduate School topic and
education is personally hurtful and is ruining my investment in this
University, and I remind you that I have been associated with this
school going back to 1986. Nobody here is asking the school to rise to
the level of MIT or Stanford. All that we are asking for is to achieve
the standards of its own bulletin and accreditation.

The most distressing part of this current lock out is that neither the
Faculty or the Administration has shown any consideration or concern
about the students. The Administration has locked out the faculty
supposedly to impose order, prevent disruption and facilitate normalcy
for the students. This is a canard, and only the veneer of normalcy
has been achieved while the students have been made to suffer. And the
students are powerless to take any action on their own behalf. The
faculty on the other hand claim the issues they rejected the most recent
proposals for are of critical import. If so, then why is it that when I
walked onto the campus, and there was not even a picket line? I
question the sincerity of everyone involved at this point, but this is
not my problem. My problem is that the department has been currently
gutted of qualified faculty, and that the standards has been tossed out
the window, putting my education at risk.


Sincerely
