    I worked at Clark Atlanta University full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The campus is nice. The technology in the classrooms is modern and current. The students are excited about campus life.

    Cons

    The faculty is old, poorly trained, and lacking basic technical understanding. The University as a whole is lacking in funds to maintain the current infrastructure, much less purchase new technology. There is a general lack of vision, leadership and accountability. The students are spoiled, lazy and lack respect for the faculty.

    Most of the people have the best interest of the students in mind.

    Most of the processes are broken.

    Re-vamp processes and look at what successful schools are doing as it relates to IT, student recruitment, and grant writing. Set some policies and stick to them.
