Trouble at Saint Augustine's University
Diverse: Issues in Higher Education
DECEMBER 5, 2023
Saint Augustine’s University (SAU) President Dr. Christine Johnson McPhail has been fired from her position at the school’s helm, cutting her contract and term short. The move comes as the Southern Association of Colleges (SACSCOC) voted to strip the small Historically Black College and University of its accreditation. The university has vowed to appeal the decision and will remain an accredited institution on probation during the appeal process.
