How Many Full Time Ai Faculty Does It Take To...

How many Full-time faculty are in each department (major) at Ai Miami, Tampa, Atlanta, Austin, Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, Virginia Beach?

Are the schools being run by a skeleton crew and adjuncts?

So you didn’t lay off the full time faculty?

Ours has two. Six programs, two full time faculty. Adjuncts have been fleeing from the school, leaving too many classes for the remaining teachers.

If SACS is the only remaining accreditation willing to back these schools, I’d be shocked. Our students were told only that this quarter had been approved. Students that aren’t graduating are trying to find other options and have contacted the media to get their GI bills back.

I want what’s best for these students and will remain until it closes, but only because the school itself doesn’t care.

So you have all the faculty and money you need, no students have been denied stipends and all is well then?

Be wary of ANYONE stating that the schools are not in compliance. There is NO one posting on this board who has the knowledge base to state what the student to teacher ratio is at ALL of the remaining 8 schools. I can state what it is at my school and we are well within the SACS guidelines and there is no movement by SACS to remove the accreditation. That is just a nasty lie.

All remaining Ai’s meets any faculty threshold for SACS. Go troll somewhere else.

I think they were referring to state requirements. Adjuncts have limits in this school as well as any accredited school in our state. If an adjunct exceeds the number of courses allowed, accreditation must be notified and the school must provide documentation proving that it is temporary and there is no need for a full time addition. I worked with them when our school opened and would assume the same standards apply, considering the principles are vague but do state clearly that full time faculty are needed.

Sacs Principles:

2.8 The number of full-time faculty members is adequate to support the mis- sion of the institution and to ensure the quality and integrity of each of its academic programs.

Because our school operates currently with one or two full time faculty members to oversee all programs, it does not meet the requirements. Our state requires full time Instructors teach in addition to administrative work, therefore only one meets state standards. Instructors have fled to other jobs, so adjuncts are teaching in excess of five classes as of last quarter.

We were already warned by management that we will not meet the requirements and they’re looking for ways to remedy the situation before SACS visit.

I don’t know which school they may be referring to, but some states have very specific requirements to be met in order to operate and some schools no longer meet even the broadest interpretation of state rules.

No ratio for SACS. Colleges and universities have working ratios, not specific in the standards. Number of courses taught by adjuncts - HR/Heath insurance issue - not accreditatation. Find accurate information. It is out there.

So it’ll just work itself out naturally.

It was Fort Lauderdale that was ACICS. Miami has been SACS for many years.

SACS was very harsh in regards to the changes being made to the schools. I do not see them allowing this to continue. The programs, two full timers but six programs, no oversight, new hires don’t meet minimum requirements, and adjunct instructors teaching more than twice the limit allowed per quarter proves we no longer meet the standards. Our state requires that and more, so they could pull us even if we pass accreditation review in the coming weeks.

I also wouldn’t be surprised if SACS pulls the plug to save their own reputation, because DCEH has only broken every rule and failed every requirement without the slightest hesitation. We won’t remain open, but I am hoping we can still offer a teachout or find a school to allow the remaining students to complete their program.

They'll probably just put them on double secret probation as usual and pocket the pay to play. All part of the conspiracy to grift.

The schools are NOT compliant with SACS - the full-time faculty to student ratio is far below the required amount. While these schools are currently accredited, they are by NO means in compliance. Some departments have "0" full-time instructors. It won't be long before SACS begins to pull the accreditation of these schools.

Miami Ai was ACICS, when did they become SACS???

Post ID: @Y5jAXc6-1zqn

These are SACS schools and have to follow strict guidelines for full time faculty, their participation in curriculum and outcomes. With DCEH out of the picture and the schools are running independent, they have a good chance of surviving the other AI closings and bad press. Time will tell.

Nearly everyone is gone. Not enough to meet standards of regional accreditation or the standards we used on or last reaffirmation.
