The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools notified us by phone yesterday that they voted to remove us from membership. We are deeply disappointed by their decision and are in the process of appealing. While the matter is under appeal, the status of the College remains unchanged. This means that we still are open for business, we can still grant degrees and our students credit hours remain valid.
We feel very good about our chances on appeal. We have turned the corner at PQC. Schools that have a 600% increase in applications, eliminate more than $800,000 in debt over the course of the last six weeks, increase donations by 90% in two years and produce a quarter million dollar surplus in the worst economy since the Great Depression deserve the opportunity to finish the work they have started. We are that school and we deserve the opportunity to finish transforming Paul Quinn College into one of America's great small colleges.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call me at the school- 214-379-5550.
Always remember, there is no "quit" in the Quinnites.
