Glover: Latest Fixes Easy for EWC; FACULTY College Must Show It Has Enough in 'Each' of Its Programs

Edward Waters College is working to fix deficiencies in full-time faculty staffing and documentation of its academic plan cited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools when placed on accreditation warning status in December.

The private Jacksonville college was given a year to prove it has corrected the deficiencies.

Edward Waters remains accredited. A warning is the least severe form of SACS sanction.

SACS said the college had failed to demonstrate compliance with core requirements regarding the number of full-time teachers in two programs: Mass Communications and Credentials for Leadership in Management and Business, known commonly as CLIMB. Edward Waters also didn't meet SACS documentation requirements to show its institutional effectiveness in educational programs, and in its Quality Enhancement Plan, the commission stated in its formal notification letter last month.

Last week, Edward Waters President Nat Glover detailed the action taken to prove the school is in compliance. He said the issues cited are easy to fix.

"It was all positive input from SACS," Glover said. "It was like a flashlight. It shed light on issues that needed improvement."

Edward Waters is among colleges nationwide cited for not having enough full-time faculty, Glover said, because SACS changed its method for determining full-time faculty adequacy.

Association spokeswoman Pamela Cravey said there is a one word difference, which changes the method now being used to determine compliance with full-time faculty adequacy from the way it was done in the past.

"One word is different, and it's a critical one. It's aeeach,' and that makes a big difference," said Cravey, noting she doesn't know how many colleges were affected by the change.

Colleges must show they have enough full-time teachers in each of its educational programs.
