By now we know that Dr H is leaving. I feel this is a huge lost for SMU. Some students didn't like him outside of the classroom but I think we all can agree that he was a very excellent lecturer and prepared us most for the shelf compared to any other class.

Hes been in SMU for many years now and he has establish alot of contacts through out the community. Whose going to replace him? He was the dean of student affairs. This job is not learned overnight. Dr H supervised alot of extracurricular activites.


Who will replace him in the classroom? Would it be that new dean that came? I would write his initial but i forgot his name.

I think this is a loss for SMU. It will be hard to find a better lecturer

That's disappointing. I liked Dr. H, he was very organized and was able to keep the 50 battons in the air. He always kept us informed with the latest updates. He was always in his office when I requested to look at my exam and was able to assist with any questions. I liked that he didn't let the con artists get away with what ever they were up to. Where is he going? Back to the US or staying on the island?

I remember when we were locked out of the room if we were 1 second late, and it makes me chuckle. I often reflect on the ethical & drug lectures when issues arise.

Dr H, we will miss you. I feel you led SMU to a better direction. Good luck with your future plans. :D

I agree with above. I think Dr. H is one of the best lecturers that SMU has. He is a asset to the school and should be missed by all. I also think that his class replacement Dr. B is very good as well. She is new to lecturing but gets better with every class day that passes. I'm sorry to see Dr. H leave but glad to have Dr. B with us as well. (ALB)

Dr. H will surely be missed.

I hope SMU hires an experienced dean, instead of just promoting someone from the faculty. Good leadership is one of the greatest assests at SMU, I would like to see someone with real experience take his place.

Glad he is leaving. He should have been canned ages ago. The man has serious people skill issues among other things, regardless of his hopefully improved teaching. By the way, he is a psychologist and not a psychiatrist, so it's probably be beneficial to the student body that someone who has actually practiced in the field of psychiatry actually teach the course.

P.S. Good Riddens to Dr. H!!!!

Dr. H was easily one of the best teachers at SMU.
Any reason on why he is leaving (his choice, was fired?).

I'm assuming he is leaving at the end of the semester, not right now (I hope I am correct in this assumption).

Was this decided upon today?

He was an okay teacher, but he did so much outside the classroom. Always sending emails for group tutoring or any announcements.

I think he is a brilliant teacher, He came to class well prepared at all times, but he has personality issues, I wish him the best.

i think he was adequate, he did teach well on certain things, but he skipped out SO much on ethics that it was ridiculous.

psych isn't that hard of a class to teach, the material is straightforward and he used a good book for his info (fadem).

His teaching and interaction with students must have changed dramatically. I knew him to be very abrasive and his teaching was in my view not the best I have seen at SMU.

i posted in the right place...just need to read it w/ your heart and soul:

In 1958, Richard Loving, a white man, married Mildred Jeter, a black woman, in Washington, DC. When they moved to Virginia, the Lovings were accused of violating the state's antimiscegenation laws (http://www.answers.com/topic/anti-miscegenation-laws) under the Racial Integrity Act (http://www.answers.com/topic/racial-integrity-act-of-1924). Their sentence, a year in prison, would be suspended if they left the state for 25 years. Living in Washington, they sued to overturn their conviction, claiming that they were denied equal protection under Amendment XIV (http://www.answers.com/topic/fourteenth-amendment-to-the-united-states-constitution). On this date in 1967, in Loving v. Virginia (http://www.answers.com/topic/loving-v-virginia), the US Supreme Court (http://www.answers.com/topic/supreme-court-of-the-united-states) overturned the conviction, ruling that antimiscegenation statutes were unconstitutional.

i have no need to explain further...you could interpret anyway that you want, since we cannot represent every student in SMU from the past and the current. there are over 6,000 students out there each term for the past 4 yrs while he was here. if you ask 6,000 student, you might get about more 1,000 opinions..does it matter now??..it is over!

in life, just always remember to treat anyone that way you want to be treated and then you will prosper more than you ever imagine! you will always have more than you ever wish or want!

i have lived almost 5 decades and worked over 25 yrs my life time in the big Apple. i dare to say that the end result will come to hurt you if you ever hurt anyone!

no one knows the TRUE reason why he is leaving. it will be him, and his bosses, and the GOD! does it matter?

Everybody calm down and get back on the thread's topic.

IMO, he wasn't very efficient and was the source of some problems when I was there. I dealt with him extensivley through Student Government, and felt a lot of things were stymied by him. He was an excellent prof, but maybe not the best dean of SA.

*sarcasm* (i didnt want to be blunt and raw, due to the fear that friction may arise from such a sensitive issue) :roll:

but in that case....

i too feel Dr. H to not be all that adequate as a prof...i agree with the above, psych is very straight forward, and fadem is an excellent source to refer to....
lectures are always of topic (LIKE SOME PEOPLE HERE!!>>>MD777!! always off topic, both here and everywhere else!), powerpoints are skewed and never organized or relevant to exams and such stuff...


so Dr.H leaving may have impacted on some individuals....why, i have no idea.
