Furman education professor Paul Thomas has been very open with his colleagues and administrators about his struggles with anxiety, which includes a fear of flying.  He talked about some of those fears and how they are perceived by others in a Chronicle of Higher Education article which states that while “counseling and other support for troubled students have become easier to find in recent years…many professors still deal with their problems in isolation.”
