The article adds nothing that helps Bennett at this point in time but it provides a solid roadmap for other institutions in this same situation.  My opinion is based on my experience with Shaw. Years ago when we were in the exact same situation Bennett finds itself in today, our board chair, Willie Gary,  selected a persident with the skills mentioned in the article.

We owed Department of Education millions, and were in terrible financial shape heading into accreditation  renewal.  Dr. Yancey used her connections with the Department of Education of restructure our debt.  She also used her past association with SACS to get us through the accreditation process.

The author may have been correct to say that Dawkins did not have the expertise to get Bennett through the accreditation process, and that the new president has no experience with the Department of Education.  These  skillsets are invaluable to a college.   

Honestly, there is no way Bennett should have been rejected after raising 9 million dollars.

I was hopeful the accreditation board would reverse their decision after Bennett raised the $9M however, a successful short-term feel good moment fundraiser still does not speak to Bennett's ability to effectively and consistently manage funds which is why their accreditation was snatched and they were unable to right the ship in the two-year time period they were given.  My guess is Bennett is banking on the school's COO to really take the lead on wadding through their accreditation woes.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
