Southern Association of Colleges Denies Paul Quinn College's Accreditation Appeal
Wheelan explains that Paul Quinn now has two options: "They can reapply for membership. The other would be to take us to court."
Which is precisely what Paul Quinn intends to do. William Brewer, who is representing the college, made his case to the SACS last week. Afterward he said, "We think the hearing went fine -- good, in fact. We're very hopeful." But he also said that if the 137-year-old institution lost its appeal, he was prepared to take the case to federal court.
A message has been left with Brewer's assistant, who says he will call back later today with comment. School officials said they could not comment on the SACS's decision today; instead, they plan to hold a media conference sometime later this week.
