Law, culture, and Catholicism...up in smoke!

Sunday, March 11, 2007

It looks good on the outside....

When it was mid-day, they saw a beautiful snow-white bird sitting on a bough, which sang so delightfully that they stood still and listened to it. And when its song was over, it spread its wings and flew away before them, and they followed it until they reached a little house, on the roof of which it alighted; and when they approached the little house they saw that it was built of bread and covered with cakes, but that the windows were of clear sugar. "We will set to work on that," said Hansel, "and have a good meal. I will eat a bit of the roof, and you Gretel, can eat some of the window, it will taste sweet." Hansel reached up above, and broke off a little of the roof to try how it tasted, and Gretel leant against the window and nibbled at the panes.

Mmmmm. Sounds good! Yet, things are not always as they appear. I reproduce here a note sent to me by one of our readers:

"AMU's Sole Accreditor in Big Trouble"

AMU has only one accreditor, AALE. AALE is in major hot-water with the DOE (as in losing its status as an accreditor for Title IV funds). The fall of AALE means that AMU can't disburse federal aid.

More than that, it *may* have implications on AMU's relationship with the Colliers - i.e. that AMU is not holding-up its end of the bargain and, therefore, may lose-out in the real estate partnership. In that case, what is the impact on AMSL's promised endowment? That is, how is AMSL's promise of money tied to AMU's potential loss of accreditation? - that question should be pushed hard. What are the terms of AMU's contract with Barron-Collier?

Big name Catholics. Catholic Town. Catholic University. Catholic Oratory. Catholic Law School. Catholic Values. Catholic Neighbors. Etc. Etc. Etc. Sounds good doesn't it! "Unparalleled opportunity!"
