Gallaudet U. still facing critics

Despite dwindling student protests over the would-be hiring of its new president, Gallaudet University is facing criticism from its administration, faculty and students’ parents, reports the Chronicle of Higher Education.

Groups are blaming university officials for not enforcing higher academic standards and urging faculty to pass failing students.

In addition, a report by the federal Office of Management and Budget shows that the university is missing graduation rate targets, with only 28 percent of students earning their degrees in six years or less.
Administrators say that they intend to work to fix the problems facing the institution.
