Chronicle of Higher Ed Artcle Showing Unfair Hiring Process
Attorney General Sam Olens was appointed as the next President of Kennesaw State University without a national search, without faculty or student government input, without a doctorate nor any experience as a Professor. Mr. Olens is an unsuitable choice, made through a process that lacked transparency and legitimacy. It smacks of cronyism.
Faculty, students and friends of KSU are fighting back!
Funds raised will be used to pay costs related to court filing fees, salaries/fees for attorneys and/or investigators, printing and distributing materials related to this effort, and advertising related to public education on the issue of illegal or corrupt hiring practices at Georgia’s institutions of Higher Education.
GoFundMe keeps 5% of each donation plus a credit card processing fee. If you want to make a donation without these fees, go to any Suntrust bank and deposit into this account: 061000104: 1000195208722.
This account is being hosted by the Cobb Chapter of the SCLC (MLK's group, Southern Christian Leadership Conference).
Any unused funds will be divided between 3 scholarship funds at KSU: CARE scholarship (for students who are homeless or at risk and working with our Care Center); GAP scholarship for seniors needing funds in their final semester; and Helen Ridley MS in Conflict Management scholarship.
Thank you for supporting justice and transparency at Kennesaw State University and the University System of Georgia.
