Pros

Carson Newman has provide me the opportunity to build an entire degree program with academic standards that supersede larger universities. My supervisor and dean have continually supported any changes I recommended for the curriculum, GPA standards and laboratory equipment requisite for me to provide an exemplary educational environment for my students.

Cons

Mirroring larger universities, it is blatantly apparent that athletic ventures (e.g., football) receive the preponderance of financial gifts and enjoy facilities that grossly exceed most academic classrooms.

Advice to Management

Develop a pragmatic financial strategy to permit the university to maintain it's financial solvency without a significant reliance on donations from entities who wish to influential the religious principles championed by the university.
