Abstract: This is a true story of a 100 year old plus academic institution, which saw its reputation maligned and discredited through the acts of a new university president. Those acts led to complete upheaval of the institution, numerous firings of faculty and staff personnel and the mass exit of others. The result was that a once well respected institution was now on the ropes and faced the possibility of shutting its doors.
Keywords: university administration; financial collapse; mis-management; lost accreditation; higher education; university presidents; USA; United States.
