博士读到第4年,因为没做核酸检测,惨遭学校开除……这件事,刚刚发生在了一位在美国

博士读到第4年,因为没做核酸检测,惨遭学校开除……

这件事,刚刚发生在了一位在美国名校UIUC(伊利诺伊大学香槟分校)就读的中国博士生身上。

最令他不解的是,连着两个学期,他都在家上网课,甚至从未踏入校园一步。

而且他这样度过春季学期,一点问题也没有。

现在秋季学期,却被开除学籍、注销签证,面临遣返回国…

上诉还被驳回了。他的同学和老师都替他冤,有1万4千多人联名希望学校重审重判。

what happened?

Ivor Chen (中文名拼音Yidong Chen),UIUC计算物理学专业博士生。

2020年的12月21日,他突然接到了UIUC的纪律处分通知,指控他违反了学校的新冠防疫检测规定。

具体来说,就是他在秋季学期开始后,没有参与学校组织的核酸检测。

然而,从春季学期开始,为了照顾母亲以及躲避疫情,陈同学就一直在Champaign-Urbana的家中上网课,实验室的研究工作,也在家中完成。

按照UIUC之前的规定,“100%远程工作、拥有住所且只因必要活动出门”的人,可以免做核酸检测。

Student Chen thinks that he fully meets these requirements, and has already applied to the school's health center as early as the spring semester, and obtained permission to be exempt from testing.

但到了秋季,就接到了这样的指控。

于是,陈同学向学校的GEO (研究生雇员组织)求助,一起参加由UIUC校理事会学生纪律委员会举行的听证。

但是,在听证会上的程序,令人大吃一惊。

GEO后来在“请愿书”中披露,听证会全程,GEO的代表都被禁止发言。

The questions asked by the Disciplinary Committee to Chen himself were also irrelevant questions, such as whether he received medical insurance from the university, whether he received a 401K (U.S. pension plan), and how often shopping...

整个听证会,持续不到10分钟。陈同学为自己辩护的时间和机会并不多。

But after this "procedure", the Disciplinary Committee actually gave such a punishment decision:

Expulsion for one year, effective immediately;

Two 2-word review books (reflective essays.);

Prohibition of entering the campus, supervised by the university police department;

If you apply for repetition after one year, you must submit a petition;

80 hours of community service;

If you want to return to school, you need to provide proof of successful academic or work experience within 1 year of being dismissed.

按照UIUC之前的处罚,这就是顶格处罚了,当然不能令陈同学信服。

However, in the second appeal concluded a few days ago, the Disciplinary Committee ignored the opposition of all parties and still insisted on the expulsion decision.

What's more tragic is that Chen's "application one year later", which seems to have a chance in punishment, is also very tasteless.

因为对于陈同学来说,他和母亲还都因为签证注销,失去合法国际学生的身份,将面临被遣送回国的境地。

It is very difficult to find a legal job or other university laboratory immediately...

Therefore, many comments say that the decision of UIUC destroyed the future of a young scientific researcher almost instantly.

GEO也很快在网上发起联名,支持陈同学,要求撤销处罚的请愿活动,目前已有将近1.5万人联名。

而陈所在的学院院长、系主任在内的5名重量级教授,也签署了一封支持信,表示这项处罚对于无意中犯下的错误来说过于严重。

但截至目前,事情还没有实质转机。

中国博士生为何不核酸?

UIUC的决定,有合理依据吗?

严格讲,按照学校秋季学期的最新规定,他确实违规了。

之前春季学期的规定,是100%在家学习办公可免做核酸测试。

而秋季学期之后,学校更新了要求,即使是在Champaign, Urbana本地居住的学生,完全上网课也必须做核酸检测。

若违反规定,最高可给予开除处分。

image

在此之前,UIUC也一直以严格防疫着称。学校每月花费400万刀,每周对学生进行2次筛查,校园实验室不分昼夜运转、5-10小时内提供结果的大面积核酸检测,取得「阳性比例大部分时间都保持在1%以下」的高校防疫成绩。

但同时,学校也为生活在当地(Urbana, Champaign and Savoy)且不打算返校的学生开通了新冠检测豁免申请——豁免的情况很少,只有证明核酸测试对自己特别繁重的学生,才会获得豁免。

所以陈同学是“明知故犯”?

在GEO的公开信中说,陈同学压根不知道学校在秋季改政策了。

因为秋季学期时,大学管理部门并没有在群发邮件中列出豁免程序,学生也不知道信息有更新,还以为延续春季的程序。

image

于是Ivor Chen,踩雷了。

而且好巧不巧,之前一直在家深居简出的他,因为一次考试,被精准定位。

At the end of last year, Chen went out to participate in the certification test of the Association of Actuaries, and the test site hung the brand of Prometric, an American computer education and examination certification service company.

The Association of Actuaries and Prometric have nothing to do with UIUC in terms of their organizational relationship, so he did not expect to do nucleic acid testing.

但是测试所在的建筑大楼,却归UIUC所有,陈同学没有核酸证明,被禁止进入大楼。

At the same time, he was also caught by the school for "violating the anti-epidemic regulations" and received a notice of punishment from the school.

声援者众,学校不为所动

目前,陈同学的遭遇引起了更多人的关注。

在change.org的请愿官网,有1万4千人联名,希望重审重判。

在Reddit上,也有800多的热度,并且呼吁学校重新让他回到校园。

但学校方面,驳回二次上诉后,还没有任何回应。

大家都认为这样的处罚实在不公平而且太过苛刻。

首先是因为陈同学本身并未对校园防疫工作造成任何损害,仅仅因为漏接邮件就开除,说不过去。

相应的,既然他能够获得春季学期的豁免,这个事实也足够证明秋季学期的’不合规’指控是不合理的:

image

纪律委员会的决定冷酷、不必要:

image

其次是因为校方本身的防疫规则变更频繁,通知邮件也很混乱。

在给陈同学发“存在违规风险”的通知邮件当天,校方一共给学生发了25封各种邮件…….如此重要的邮件,也没有进一步说明。

而且直到通知他去听证会前,也没有任何工作人员跟他联系沟通。

这导致他本来可以利用邮件中给的“两天之内”进行核酸检测来避免被开除的最后机会,也丢失了。

另外,这还不是个例。

在知乎上,有匿名用户在有关陈同学遭遇的问题下也表明了自己的看法,他也遇到了完全相同的问题,最后也是在听证会后被开除。

目前,争议还在继续。
