Re: “College in Revolt

Re:Almond Joy You are correct.
The disgrace wasn't public, or not made available to the larger Humboldt community. The censure was internal and the public I should have acknowledged includes the CR public. New administrators were warned of their tactics and history. Harris made it clear to Marsee who to watch out for. Once Crabill left and during CR's time with Harris, the cadre of offenders were slowly moved out of positions of influence. Some retired and the others were put back in the classroom which is where they really want to be anyway. The only documentation would likely exist in the form of legal files and the testimony associated with past settlements. I don't think that would be available to the public outside of a freedom of info request. My apologies for the mis-characterization.

Re: “College in Revolt

Re:outsider looking in As former CR faculty and a member of program review committee during the accreditation process I can attest that the accreditation commission consistently praised the faculty for their work at the college, their dedication to the students, and their bending over backwards work ethic on behalf of the students, the school and the community. The accreditation commission consistently cited administrative misdeeds that were (are) responsible for the plethora of problems at the school. The accreditation reports should be public and can be verified by any outsider looking in who may be interested in doing so. The most notable citation of the faculty in those documents was their failure to notify the accreditation commission of the administrative shuck and jive. Such is their duty. The faculty heard the criticism and remedied that problem immediately. There are a handful of faculty though who have in the past buddied up with the admin to do their bidding. Those faculty have since been exposed,censured,and publicly disgraced. They have been rendered impotent as tools of the administration(save Mike Wells).
Thus, the faculty are the harbingers of truth in this case and should be heard out as such.
I'm just so thankful I left when I did. While I miss many of the students and many of the faculty, the place is absolutely toxic. For the faculty, it is their life. For the administrators, it is simply a stepping stone. The students, faculty and community are their stones of ascension. I truly hope the people of Humboldt take their electoral responsibilities very seriously by researching the board, the upcoming candidates for board service and vote en mass from a position of knowledge. The community, now informed, have work to do if they truly value their educational institution.
