Advice for Dixie State
A suggestion to DSU Administration for the New Year: Don't become too anxious to fix what isn't broken. The school has gotten along reasonably well without you for the past 100 years. There are numerous smaller colleges and universities around the country that aren't overly obsessed about image and growth, yet do an excellent job at what they deem their particular mission.
Maybe Dixie State doesn't need to be "re-branded," or increase "student enrollment ... to 12,500 within the next five years ... and ethnically-diverse students to 30% of total enrollment," as per President Williams.
How about this for 2016:
1. Begin paying your adjunct instructors a decent salary and stop trying to get by on the cheap.
2. Open the window of your "Window on the World" Forum and let in some fresh air by attracting distinguished speakers. (Presently, student attendance is pathetic).
3. Start a women's gymnastics program.
4. And, lastly, Mr. Williams, there are a few thousand residents of this town that challenge you to man up to the unfinished business of the Varlo Davenport affair. For them, your integrity is still in question.
Please show us that we are mistaken!
