Ai Houston Cancelled all 12th Week Meetings

All 12th week meetings at Houston scheduled for Jan. 2 and Jan. 3 for the Jan. 6 start are "cancelled until further notice".

Dean Eaton resigned suddenly 2 weeks ago after 19 years with Ai.

Have any other campuses had their 12th Week Meetings cancelled as well?

Yeah this is the same kind of BS we got at AiLV, we found out we were closing from ACICS. We have received nothing from our fearless, self proclaimed "Campus Director". I'm sure he and his husband out of the country running away from their mounting lawsuit.

This is the same stuff that's been going on since Dream Center took over. Too much overhead, and not enough money. Plus the multi million dollar deal moving Austin to Bastrop with a failing school is about as smart as opening up a branch of Trump University. Dumb stupid move that probably put the other remaining schools in Jeopardy. Just close Austin already.

AI Houston will have an interesting development in Week 2! Half of the faculty will be walking out of the front door! The President and Dean should put their Big-Boy Pants on and address the students and faculty, but instead, they are cowards! I hope this guy knows something about teaching, he will have to substitute about 15 classes next week.

He thought he was so clever canceling 12th Week Meetings when faculty entered the building at 8:00AM, he was HIDING in his office and made the receptionist send an email at 8:30AM canceling all meetings, then he locked himself in his office! This guy is the BIGGEST JOKE!

Houston Dean and Registrar resigned, 2 chairs, faculty coordinator and student mentor coordinator let go. But they are shoving new classes full of students. Sign them up and then pull the plug!? Does anyone know what's going on?

This is crazy. One of the faculty members responsible for registering (not a registrar) just quit at our campus today.

Doesn’t sound very good. If you all haven’t started looking for a job yet start!

I just found out from a colleague that the Dean resigned and that all of the faculty coordinators were let go without notice.
