Pros

The instructors are highly qualified and really enjoy helping students achieve their goals. Many of the staff and instructors work hard to build quality programs

Cons

Management has no idea how to manage or lead. Accolades are given based on personal friendships, not measurable, qualitative abilities. Students are given full rein of the campus. There is no support for faulty or staff. The workplace environment is extremely toxic, to the point where staff and instructors have fallen ill.

Advice to Management

Hire individuals with integrity and ethics. Hire individuals with teaching experience (college-level) in non-for profit education. Hire individuals who are experienced in a college setting as a provost or academic advisor (again, other than for-profits) Hire individuals who have extensive experience working with disadvantaged, minority and other challenging groups. Hire individuals who know the difference between management and delegation. Hire individuals who have a multicultural background, showing proven leadership and accountability.
