I almost--almost--feel sorry for Delta. They clearly have no idea what they just got themselves into. But they clearly didn't want to know. They bought Marsee's fabrications about his role in CR's accreditation history (note to Delta: in the months before Marsee arrived, the ACCJC had begun holding up CR as a model to other colleges for the progress we'd made; in just two years after arriving, we had new sanctions we'd never had before that focused specifically on Marsee's inability to work with others in anything but an autocratic manner). But all this was in the accjc reports, and Delta chose instead to believe Marsee's ridiculous claim that he "saved" CR. The facts just don't support that. The facts also don't support his claim that he turned enrollment around and eliminated a deficit. Before he arrived, enrollment was growing and the budget was balanced. And again, those facts are out there, and Delta apparently chose to ignore them and to embrace Marsee's version where he is the messiah (get used to that style, by the way: when things are good, he takes credit even when its not due; when things are bad, he blames others). Anyway, what a blunder Delta made. But I am so, so, so, so glad they made it. Thank you, Delta, You excised our cancer.
