    I have been working at Southern Adventist University full-time

    Pros

    Teaching at any university is going to be decent, simply because of the schedule. Southern's people are what make this a great place. Students are great, faculty are generally pretty great. Location and campus are tough to beat as well.

    Cons

    Top level admin needs to reshuffle the cabinet and rotate a few of these individuals to other institutions, or into non-senior-admin positions on campus. These are nice people, good Christians, and they work hard... but there needs to be some change. Also, although the student body has become very diverse in the last twenty years, the faculty has not and there has been virtually zero effort to remedy this. I am a white professor but realize the need for my colleagues to look more like my students.

    Advice to Management

    Other than fixing the "Cons" noted above, just keep up the good work, Mr. President. We are all behind you.
