SACS to TSU and Fisk: You've Got Less Than a Year to Clean Up Your Act

Posted By on Tue, Dec 7, 2010 at 2:57 PM

Troubled HBCU TSU has been facing a barrage of criticism in the last two years that the university is a nightmare of bureaucracy whose ailing programs put it at risk of irrelevance. Today, the accreditation-granting board Southern Association of Colleges and Schools announced, after a review of the university's institutional effectiveness, that rather than receive a re-up of accreditation, TSU has been placed on warning. From the City Paper:

Tennessee State University remains accredited for now, but the historically African-American school has one year to overhaul polices or else it could lose accreditation. The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools put the school on warning Tuesday, TSU announced in a news release, after a SACS commission denied the university’s long-term, 10-year accreditation. “TSU remains accredited, and today’s announcement will not impact any student’s graduation or the value of any certificate or degree earned at the university,” the release reads. Reportedly, Fisk University has been put on warning of losing its accreditation, too. Fisk officials could not be reached for comment.
