Regarding management by intimidation: Gallaudet staff members are terrified to express opinions critical of the administration, so there is little incentive among university employees to make suggestions for improvement.Furthermore, the administration has used divisive tactics, such as campuswide announcements and news releases, that seem intended to demonize students, faculty, staff and alumni.

That Fernandes continues to assert that she is the only deaf person who can do the job is demeaning not only to the faculty but also to the university, which has produced many leaders in the field of education.
