Board To Discuss Improvements At FAMU
South Florida Crime
TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami/AP) – The state’s Board of Governors will meet Wednesday and Thursday at Florida A&M University to discuss improvements being made on the campus.
State University Chancellor Frank Brogan is scheduled to discuss the steps the university is taking in the wake of an inspector general’s report. That report criticized university officials for failing to follow laws and regulations in the years leading to the hazing death of a drum major.
FAMU has made sweeping changes after the November 2011 death of Robert Champion.
In December, the university was placed on probation for a year by a regional accrediting organization. The university has one year to prove it is turning itself around or it could have its accreditation revoked.
