A document transcribing a recent BJU faculty/staff Q&A session has surfaced online, apparently leaked by an attendee. The questions asked range over a number of issues: the school’s financial standing, firearms on campus, Obamacare, the G.R.A.C.E. investigation, and more.
The session, which was held on February 8th, 2013 according to the transcript, is a rare glimpse into the inner workings of the school’s hierarchy. Even more unusual is the frank nature of the questions asked; faculty openly question the school’s recent re-branding attempts especially in light of declining enrollment (now admitted to be declining by the admin itself) and subsequent financial troubles.
It’s fascinating to note how the questions asked by faculty and staff track with our posts here on BJU News and on other BJU watchdog pages. The topics raised by BJU employees are very similar to ones we’ve posted about: G.R.A.C.E., course-trimming, politics, low wages for BJU employees, declining enrollment, etc.
