    The President should really consider terminating all current management and seek qualified candidates that know how to treat their employees.

    Great Staff. Diverse student body. Front line employees give their all for the students.

    Favoritism. Management appears to be concerned with their image than being accountable for situations they could prevent.

    Advice to Management

    Better communications and equity. Better support for frontline staff. Better salaries for faculty.

    Pros

    The overall vision of the college, to provide an education to a segment of our society that would not be able to go to school otherwise.

    Do not lose touch with students. they are your customers and keep them in mind when implementing changes.
