MACU Reponse to Clery Act Findings

November 26, 2014

Elizabeth City, NC –November 24, 2014 A single tragic event on the campus of Mid-Atlantic Christian University in 2010 precipitated a routine investigation by the Department of Education’s (DOE) Clery Act Compliance Team. The investigation focused upon Mid-Atlantic’s response to that incident, campus safety issues, as well as policies, procedures, and documents from 2009 and 2010.  This comprehensive evaluation determined that Mid-Atlantic’s response to that incident, including our communication with students, staff and others was in full compliance with Clery Act requirements.  While there were no findings of any campus safety issues, the DOE discovered minor administrative and policy deficiencies of a technical nature that did not fully comply with certain Clery Act reporting and recordkeeping requirements.  On January 30, 2014 the DOE released its Final Program Review Determination (FPRD) indicating that the university had satisfactorily addressed the deficiencies. As is often the case following tragedies of this nature, reviewers carefully scrutinized “the University’s adherence to its ‘Timely Warning’ policy in response to the shooting incident.”  The review determined “that the University acted in a compliant manner in this instance.”  It should be noted that none of these actions, policies, or procedures contributed to the tragedy on the...

The first is social mobility, which gives colleges credit for enrolling many low-income students and helping them earn degrees. The second recognizes research production, particularly at schools whose undergraduates go on to earn PhDs. The third values a college’s commitment to service and involvement in the greater community.   Mid-Atlantic Christian University is proud of its 66 year history and the impact her alumni have made around the world.  Graduates serve in 46 states, 1 territory, and 25 countries.  Mid-Atlantic is a university that values integrity, compassion, and service.

According to MACU President Clay Perkins, the university started the fall semester this week with 199 students. That’s three more than in the fall of 2003 when enrollment hit 196, he said. Perkins said this year’s figure “very well could be a record attendance for us,” but MACU won’t know for sure until after the drop/add period ends. Enrollment could go up; it also could go down. “It certainly is a growth year for us, and we’re excited about it,” Perkins said. At...
