The overarching focus is the intersection between people’s daily lives, the diversity of our communities, and the workings of our institutions. These and other matters will be interrogated from multiple points of view and discussed in engaging ways that draw on academic research, media portrayals and lived experiences.

Many people particularly students of the university don’t know what even happened for theremoval of their president. Scott L. Scarborough, the president who resigned, departed relatively quickly with not too much explanation at first. When he took office in 2014 he instantly received criticism for naming the university a polytechnic institution and the layoff of employees. His decisions to only get worse from there. He was already not really like by his fellow employees and students as his decisions weren’t benefiting them and seem to always negatively impact them. Also would completely disregard committees vote or opinions. Online classes weren’t as effective as perceived and he took the fall for that after closing that chapter. What really got to the employees however, was when over 200 employees were laid off but, over 950,000 was going towards the president’s home.
