[QUOTE=SUNYcadet;107317]If Hanft keeps doing what she is doing, she will bring the school down one way or another. Talk about cadet’s putting money together for a class action law suit against what Hanft is doing, sounds justified, but will essentially end up being a law suit against SUNY Maritime, not Hanft herself. If SUNY Maritime wants to keep their reputation, customers (students), and funding, Hanft needs to leave. Upon her termination/resignation, I’d say about 80% or her ‘rulings’ should be over turned. She has personally gotten cadets kicked off of cruise and out of the regiment, single-handed, by unfairly changing the number of demerits for a certain offense just to put a certain cadet over their demerit cap. Cadets are starting to realize there are real monetary damages that occur based on Hanfts actions and decisions. MONETARY DAMAGES = LAW SUIT. There has been a loss of Due Process as Hanft’s decisions are final.
I really hope someone puts together an anonymous survey that would gather the effects of Hanfts actions on an individual basis, analyze, and pursue justice. Once it comes to that, and in the hands of a lawyer, the institution of SUNY Maritime will be at risk.[/QUOTE]
The cadets who have the most to lose at this point are the ones who have completed all 3 cruises and are nearing CG license exam. They’re being kicked out left and right. They’re being targeted for minor infractions so that the point cap and get thrown out.
