Ferris State Professor put on leave after profane video to students surfaces

A Ferris State University professor has been placed on leave after he told students in a profanity laced video that he randomly assigns grades before the first day of class.

 

Barry Mehler is a 74-year-old instructor at FSU, he told students in the video: "I don't even want to know your name. I just look at the number and assign a grade. That is how predestination works, take your complaints to God."

 

In the 14- minute video, Mehler calls students "vectors of disease" and says they don't need to attend class in person.

 

Ferris President David Eisler said in a statement. “I was shocked and appalled by this video. It is profane, offensive and disturbing and in no way reflects our University or its values,”
