Arlene Saxonhouse makes a career out of doing stuff unrelated to her job when she should be doing what the university pays her to do. This is not an uncommon practice in the University of Michigan bureaucracy.
Arlene Saxonhouse, nevertheless, does it so flagrantly that working on anything except her personal things is no longer an option for her. Arlene Saxonhouse arrives to class hurried, unfocused, and unprepared to deliver a good lecture. When class ends, she leaves the classroom quickly and darts back to her office. She has no time for students outside class.
She devotes her time to her sexual harassment awareness groups, women's empowerment issues, and other forms of activism. Arlene Saxonhouse is so hands off that her teaching assistants do not perform their job adequately. Her teaching assistants receive little input from her about lectures. Arlene Saxonhouse can't be bothered with concerns and has a dismissive response style when speaking to them.
She makes it known that students grades may suffer for speaking to her.
She is mostly absent during her office hours and doesn't meet people against school policy.
