Please............................................. enough of the Dr. Voddie Baucham discussion. I am very disappointed with the news of Brian Metzer. The sad part is that 90% of these "big name" people are phony and have too much baggage.
Don't know where we are going to end up, but we need to move forward with all haste to get Prevo out of there. Not at the expense of making the wrong decision (again). And the entire board needs to resign. Remove ego's from the room and it would be empty.

They all need to go. They have from Day 1 of this nonsense breaking. Put a plan in place to have had everyone phased out in 24 months at the latest. It’s called responsibility and accountability.

I only know of 2 worth keeping. If you clean out the rest, might as well have them resign as well and let the new president decide if he/she want to keep them.

Do we really want the new president to have that much control over the board?

That's why we should have a Chancellor that would work with the President.

Anyone catch the nugget Jr threw out on ig? He said former Fairmont State president Mirta Martin is one of the candidates to replace Prevo. I’d assume the top if he’s putting it out there. He apparently hates it because it’s Franklin Grahams candidate :roll:.

If it is true about Martin, she has a strong academic background and is well respected. Looks to be a good choice.

I just looked her up. She seems like a strong, effective Christian leader that is plenty qualified for the job. It should be noted that both of her stints as a college president was cut short. She resigned from her first college after some faculty tried to get her fired and her second college essentially bought her out of her contract early after deciding she wasn't going to renew her contract. From what I can tell it's nothing that I would consider a deal breaker but I didn't dig super deep.

Do you have the tweet? Not saying that's valid, but I just wanted to take a look. I'm hoping we get a candidate who would push for growing the school by student population, research and community engagement/service. Liberty has been quite stagnant when it came to administration, so I hope that'll change. It's unfortunate to see students connected to LU with good academia and service go to other schools when they should come here. Below is an update on the growth of LU/affiliates this far:

Really hoping the next Prez in not a buddy but someone with a humble and beneficial resume that will improve campus and faculty/staff relationship as well. As I talked to people in good positions in medical, law, etc., it all connects with the understanding that LU should and could be in a better situation that it is right now.
