Wilberforce University begins its resurgence plan


WILBERFORCE, Ohio (WDTN) – The nation’s first historically black college, located in Wilberforce Ohio, is at risk of losing its accreditation, partly because it has had problems finding the proper person to fill its presidency and now, with fewer that 500 students on campus, plunging enrollment is an issue as well.

Alumni, trustees and students feel they will meet the December 15 deadline set by an accreditation agency.

The school has hired a human resources firm to help find a president and its alumni have raised $2 million to get their school out of financial trouble.

If it does not comply with the demands, the school could be closed.
