Are you concerned about Cedarville University, yet unsure of what to do about it?
If so, here’s a two-part To Do List that should only take five minutes if you’re quick:
1. ENCOURAGE A CU MENTOR:let someone from the Cedarville community who has impacted your life know how much you appreciate them.
- We are not out to destroy Cedarville. Bitterness must not win the day, and we must build up that which is good at CU as we seek to address that which is bad.
- There are many godly women and men here who have profoundly impacted lives for many years at Cedarville.
- However, many of them are currently afraid and discouraged by the current environment at the University.
- Let them know that they are not alone, they are not forgotten. Even if it’s brief, send a note of encouragement to the people at CU who have helped you become who you are today!
- The Board of Trustees has the power to change Cedarville University for better or worse.
- We have reason to believe that there are several CU trustees who share our concerns on many issues, including Dr. Ruby’s forced resignation, the dissolution of the Philosophy Major, and the school’s identity and vision
- However, we also have reason to believe that there is a small, powerful group of trustees who have control of the Board due to their influence on the Administration.
- This means that the Board — or sections of it — may not have gotten credible information from an Administration that has recently demonstrated its aversion to transparency.
