THIBODAUX, La. (AP) - Nicholls State University received a warning this week from its accrediting agency about its number of faculty and education success, following a review of the school's latest five-year progress report.
The school has not lost its accreditation.
Pamela Cravey, the agency's coordinator of communications and external affairs, tells The Courier details of the warning from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges will not be released until mid-July.
Preliminary information indicates additional documentation is needed for the number of full-time faculty members needed to support the college's mission and the expected student-learning outcomes related to educational programs.
Nicholls President Stephen Hulbert says the warning was a complete surprise.
