The University of Georgia says student evaluations of their professors are confidential. But students shouldn't take the university at its word. Professor Joseph Disponzio received very negative evaluations from a student in two of his classes, evaluations that also contained anti-gay remarks. He took them to administrators and told them whom he suspected the student was. The university hired a handwriting and document examiner who confirmed the evaluations were written by student Brian Beck. The University Judiciary found Beck guilty of disruption of the evaluation process and harassment. It ordered him to apologize to Disponzio and write an essay on how his remarks affect the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transsexual community.
