In just two years President Hardrick has demonstrated the ability to simply talk, while failing to lead. Being intoxicated to the point of slurring his words during his first homecoming attendance in Spring 2019(When he was interim president) should have been the first sign for the Board of Trustees to proceed with caution before making him the permanent president. But they did anyway, and since making him permanent president in 2019, he has given the Board of Trustees more than enough reasons why he should be removed.

WE ARE NOT SAFE ON CAMPUS. Reported and un-reported rapes and shootings have occurred (Several of which the administration attempted to cover up). And when the DOUBLE HOMICIDE happened in November 2019, students and parents had to rely on various media outlets(i.e. Social media) to gain information in the first 24 hours die to the administration's lack of communication and transparency. We did not receive any alerts from the University WENs emergency alert system, which was designed for situations such as this.

A CULTURE OF SEXUAL HARRASSMENT. ONGOING SEXUAL HARRASSMENT incidents, especially in the athletic department.

A CULTURE OF INTIMIDATION AND RETALIATION. STUDENTS ARE THREATENED WHEN THEY SPEAK OUT. The university threatened to revoke athletes scholarships and did if they spoke out last fall about the sexual harassment incidents and the pressure that was being placed on them to keep quiet and play sports in the middle of rising COVID19 cases. EMPLOYEES ALSO BECAME TARGETS WHEN THEY WOULD SPEAK OUT.

TECHNOLOGY SYSTEM IS UNRELIABLE. Students were unable to connect to classes especially during pandemic era remote learning. On campus students had to leave campus to search for reliable wifi. This is not only unsafe, it also interferes with student learning. Also, the university's main system (Which is necessary for the  functioning of all major areas of the university such as bursar, registrar, financial aid, human resources, etc.) is moving to a new system and the transition has been terrible. Just recently employee's paychecks were delayed, incorrect information shows up on students accounts, students summer A grades are still missing, etc. And recently the university revealed a new website and ,like our president, it may look good on the surface with all of the glitz and glam, but its not functional(missing lots of information associated with the links and the opening video has no sound) this site should not have been revealed until it was fully ready and functional.

CONTINUED DECLINE IN ENROLLMENT. The administration has yet to meet an enrollment goal even prior to the pandemic, and as things stand now, for the upcoming Fall semester. 

Because of the above reasons (and this list is just a snap shot of FMU problems) our reputation in the community continues to decline. Case in point, during a period when donors like McKenzie Scott and numerous others have doled out billions of dollars since December to HBCUs, these donors simply by-passed FMU, most likely because of President Hardrick's poor leadership. Bottom line, the Board of Trustees cannot continue to excuse Dr.Hardrick's performance by blaming it on Covid; his WEAK LEADERSHIP displayed before Covid continues as of this moment. As someone affiliated with FMU, it bothers me how people speak about my school. So, if it bothers you and if you are concerned about the continued viability and existence of the only HBCU in South Florida, Please SIGN THIS PETITION CALLING FOR THE REMOVAL OF PRESIDENT JAFFUS HARDRICK
