The details are in my post history, but my university sent me a cease and desist letter stating that I can only communicate with their Assistant General Counsel. For example, say I wanted to email a faculty member etc., I would email the asst. gen. counsel, and she would relay the message. The problem, however, is that she doesn't relay my messages. Instead, she'll ignore my emails/messages until I call their office several times, and then she'll email me back with an excuse as to why she hasn't responded.
My most recent request involved asking for a copy of medical records (from a university clinic). After ignoring the initial request, and after I called her office twice, she emailed me saying she would respond in a "reasonable and timely manner." I guess I'll give her a few more days, but this has been a consistent pattern, and I've realized that what they're probably doing is tracking my communications while preventing me from contacting the university. Even before the cease-and-desist letter, my emails/phone calls were being reported to the dean. (This was all over trying to have a grievance against a professor dismissed!)
Also, isn't this an invasion of my privacy?
I've seen many posts here about various situations including academic dishonesty, misconduct, etc., and I've never heard of anyone being blocked from communicating with their university/alma mater. I suspect this is because they know they mishandled my situation and are worried about a lawsuit.
Edit- I just received her message shortly after posting this...
