FVSU Alumni Meeting 9-914
« on: September 10, 2014, 11:19:06 AM »
On Yesterday, I attended the alumni meeting at Founders Hall. It was very displeasing to most that were in attendance. Dr. Angela Harris, who is the Interim Vice President of Student success and Enrollment,was over 40 minutes late. Not only was she late but she couldn't answer any questions that was asked. It was stated that the president's priority is international students and but when asked the question about marketing and recruitment, no answers were given; just evasion of the question indirectly. When we look at the makeup of the university, the efforts of changing the faces on the campus is the priority; while also setting the standards higher than the rest of the other state university, including the other HBCU's (Albany and Savannah). This is the decision that Dr. Griffith is or has decided. That means that there are qualified students that meets the entry level for FVSU, but because he has decided to elevate the standards on his own merits, those students can go to Middle Georgia State (which is up the road in Macon), Albany, Savannah, etc.  This has resulted in the decline of enrollment, which means less revenue. And before we try and recruit students internationally, (those students aren't fluent in writing and reading English that well), we need to try and recruit students locally, state wide, and within the borders of the U.S. first. And if we are going to deal with recruitment, look back at the game on Saturday. The band didn't perform during halftime; therefore we now have a traveling pep band, and they gave tickets away. That speaks volume. I then talk to others after the meeting that informed me that Dr. Griffith noted that the band isn't his priority. The alumni of FVSU need to pull together and demand from the Board of Regents that this guy must go, before we lose our university to the state, or worse we become like Morris Brown.

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>
