Warning against Grambling lifted

Posted: Updated:

GRAMBLING, La (KNOE 8 News & Grambling State University) The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools has lifted a six-month warning placed on the institution in late June. Grambling State University officials were notified on Monday night. A formal announcement is expected Tuesday.

Grambling State University President Frank Pogue said he was not surprised the warning was lifted because the university has done all it was supposed to do to restore financial integrity. He said it was only a matter of time for the state audit and the regional accrediting body to go through due diligence to find out what he already knew. Pogue predicted in June the warning would be taken off the table.

"As said in the summer when SACS placed our university on warning, I was perplexed because we had done and we were doing what needed to be done," said Pogue. Pogue received telephone notification while attending an annual SACS conference in Dallas. "Now I'm not surprised because I don't think there were any other options since our own state authority found no findings, no cause, no reason for us to follow-up on anything," said Pogue. 

Louisiana System Interim President Tom Layzell said the decision by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges affirms the health of Grambling State University.   Layzell said President Frank Pogue and his staff are to be commended for producing clean audits and establishing stronger financial controls.
