I truly believe now she is the front runner for the MEAC job

If she's the frontrunner for MEAC commish then I doubt she'd stay on at nccu till spring 2022.
MEAC needs someone now!
I think Dr Thomas is staying on until December.

Ingrid is stepping down at the end of this academic year because of personal reasons.  I am not at liberty to discuss they reasons.

We are going to miss her in Durham, but do believe she would be an incredible hire for the MEAC conference and the massive challenges it faces moving forward.  As someone mentioned in an earlier post, Ingrid had a good run; you don't hold AD title and work under four chancellors if you are not a doing something right.  The NCCU Eagle family will move forward and continue to soar as the powers make a new hire and set forth a vision for the department and its future.

Hopefully, it has nothing to do with her health.  I wish her the best.

If she is the front runner for the MEAC job, our conferenced will surely have nailed its coffin closed.   NCCU folk, being polite, did not renewing the contract. Here is hoping he has list of strong administrative  FUND RAISING business types who have had success elsewhere, building a team AND staff of professionals that have secured outside funds to enhance the program.  When fund raising was mentioned the conversations always ended with we need more students and increase in ticket prices but wouldn't lift a finger in pursuit of third party funds.  Our footprint in RTP of NC  an area replete with Fortune 500 companies.   Mr Aggie Professor, who started the post would not care if we successfully had any program or conference.   You all left.   :shrug:

From the outside looking in , it looks as if she was doing a good job. Winning in Football, Basketball and a good social media imprint. But if your not happy with your AD , so be it.

It's been explained over and over why we left. Has nothing to do with NCCU

Again , from the outside looking like she was doing well. It was nothing negative about my post

Eagle fans mostly support Dr. McCree. 

We do need more students; no lie told there.  It's essential to the academic, athletic and auxillary enterprise. 

Is the Assoc. AD in charge of development/resource acquisitions stepping down too?  Isn't it his job to raise funds?

For the Eagle fans applauding this decision/announcement; be careful what you wish for.  Her tenure was a value-add to the university, not a detractor. Also, nothing occurs in a vacuum.

Anybody applauding her stepping down needs to have their head examined. Her and the Athletics department are one of the only bright spots currently at NCCU.

Wow, the negative comment took me by surprise.  Dr. McCree did an outstanding job at NCCU and we should be thanking and wishing her well.  Hopefully, the next hire will continue her success even further.       
Whether great or small, victory is victory!
