University of Colorado is in the news, but they are hardly exceptional in the typically dismissive and disrespectful treatment of students by colleges. Typical rules of student conduct presume a retarded minor child and not a young adult — or, in the case of graduate students — a fairly mature adult.
The sheer idiocy of the advice given to students cannot be the result of mental retardation on the part of the givers. No person capable of holding a fairly advanced job is that stupid. The condescending, unhelpful advice is an expression of obvious and wanton disrespect for others. College administrators basically hold their paying customers in contempt and even get away with it much of the time.
Do they really believe the tripe about divine intervention by omnipresent police? I highly doubt it. Most likely, they consider a few women raped and beaten to be an acceptable price for maintaining ideological purity.
