It's time to sic SACS on Watts and the Board of Trustees

This website isn't enough. Now it's time to bring in the big guns: The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, the governing body that accredits institutes of higher learning in the South, including UAT and UAB.

SACS must hold the actions of these people accountable. Provide the necessary evidence through the proper channels to launch an investigation of these matters. Be civil, be intelligent, but be quick and vigilant. This must happen to shine light on the misdeeds that led to today.

If you wish to file a formal complaint with the Commission, you must submit two copies of the complaint on a standard complaint form accompanied by two copies of your supporting documentation.  This form is found on the last two pages of the Complaint Procedures located on our website
Documentation of significant non-compliance with the Principles of Accreditation  is the key factor that leads to further investigation of a written complaint.  For your complaint to be considered by the Commission, it needs to be presented as a formal complaint document that meets the provisions of items A-C and includes the checkboxes under the final paragraph on page 2 of the Complaint Form.  In other words, you must tie your complaint to specific accreditation standard numbers. 
Because we require an original signature on the Complaint Form, you should send it via ground mail to Dr. Belle S. Wheelan, President, Commission on Colleges, at this address:
Pamela Cravey, Ph.D. 
Coordinator of Communications and External Affairs
Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges
1866 Southern Lane
Decatur, GA 30033-4097
