I am a recent graduate of Cumberland University and I saw these problems occuring two years ago. No teacher wants to be told they are "serving at the pleasure of the president." What an arrogant statement. And as for the Cheers saying of "everyone knows your name", that is true with the exception of Dr. Eaton. Not once did that man ever say hi to me or nod in my direction. For the amount of money that man made off of me he should have been checking up on my pets! He also instituted iWednesdays to save money, yet tutition went up every year. I hope to see Cumberland go in a different direction than it has been. I might consider going back there for my master's degree if Eaton were gone.
