Report Shows West Virginia State University Faces Serious Problems

A state higher education report concludes that West Virginia State University is faced with serious problems, including leadership failures and financial issues.

Higher Education Chancellor Brian Noland said the report was in
response to WVSU President Huzo W. Carter Jr.'s request for a
review of the institution's financial operations.

The report cites several criticisms about how university programs are
administered.

They include nepotism, underused technology and leadership
issues. The report says WVSU "will not have sufficient resources
to remain solvent" if those problems are not dealt with.

Carter has been the university's president since 1987. He
announced in August that he plans to retire by next summer.

The announcement came after members of the school's Faculty
Senate approved a no-confidence vote in Carter's administration.
