It's only a matter of time for Harrisburg University...

You may recall back in December I reported:

Dickinson State University's president was fired for inflating enrollment numbers and for creating an intimidating environment. Those who were misidentified as enrolled students included members of the general public and high-school students seeking dual credit. An auditor's reports said "The....leadership has created a campus culture that is divided, one of distrust, disrespect, and staff being pressured to engage in unethical, suspect, or wasteful activities to meet demands."

On July 11, 2012 Dickinson State University was put "On Notice" (probation) by it's accrediting body. Their report states:

On July 11, 2012, the Higher Learning Commission placed Dickinson State University on
Notice. The Commission’s Board of Trustees took this action because of concerns related to the
University’s oversight of admissions and transfer procedures; its gathering and reporting of
enrollment and related data; its accountability for, and oversight of, contractual relationships
related to its academic program; the integrity of the program provided to certain international
students; and its articulation of, and consistent adherence to, policies and procedures at the
University or other levels.
HU students - got something to say? The press would like to hear your story. Drop me a note if you want your voice to be heard.
