CASE STUDY: Professor Rick Allen's Office

Room 1595 ▪ College of Veterinary Medicine ▪ St. Luke's University ▪ Denver, Colorado

The semester had no sooner begun than Rick Allen wished he had stayed at his cabin in the Unitas. His immensely popular course, Ethics in Animal Research, had become a staging area for protests from the increasingly vocal and militant animal rights group, Animals Like Us. Following St. Luke's open door policy for all courses taught at the university, his course in research ethics was always assigned to a large amphitheater classroom to accommodate not only students who had registered for his course, but also members of the public who wanted to attend his lectures. There was no way of controlling who attended his lectures, which literally left the door open to public protesters to the use of animals in medical research. But Rick wasn't sure how much longer he could control the situation. He was getting sick of being shouted down in his own classroom. Today some of the quieter students left in the middle of the class, apparently intimidated by the dramatics and perhaps disgusted by the lack of order in the ivy-covered halls of St. Luke's.
