TSU Alumni Furious With State Of University

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn.- A group of Tennessee State University alumni and supporters are upset with the direction the school and have decided to speak out.

In the last few months members of the "Save TSU Community Coalition" watched as a faculty member was arrested, and the school was at the center of grade changing allegations. The alumni said this is not the school they know and they will fight to make sure changes are made. They believe current administrators including interim president Portia Shield and the Tennessee Board of Regents are to blame.

"We feel that at this point, Tennessee State is under siege," said Shirley Calvin, a TSU Graduate. "I am at a point of being destroyed, it is unbelievable the situations that continue to occur at TSU,"

A spokesperson for TSU had no comment about the event.

The University's "Presidential Search Advisory Committee" also met Monday and said they will be working to find 3 to 5 finalists for the president position and hope to have someone in place by January of 2013.
