TU Alumni Awakening started this petition to Tuskegee Alumni and

Dear Family & Friends of Tuskegee University,

OUR BELOVED ALMA MATER IS IN CRISIS!! 

Tuskegee University Board of Trustees Is Not Meeting Its Fiduciary Responsibilities:

  • Three (3) Presidents, four (4) Interim presidents within 10-years.
  • Three (3) Interim Provosts since 2018 impacting institutional effectiveness as a result of presidential instability.
  • No capital campaign has been successfully created to address over $100M+ of debt, with an additional $140M+ in deferred maintenance costs since President Payton’s tenure ended in 2010.
  • They have demonstrated an unwillingness to follow the Tuskegee University Governance Document.
  • Lack of transparency.

This petition is to remove these specific Board members:

  • Norma Clayton, Chair (non-alumna/4th-term)
  • John Page, Immediate-Past Chair/Nominating Committee Chair/Tuskegee University Foundation Chair (non-alumnus/3rd-term)
  • Erick Harris, '09 (2015 recent graduate appointee/2nd-term)
  • Chereece Warner, '08 (2011 recent graduate appointee/3rd-term)

As a result of this petition, we also demand for more transparency with Alumni, Students, Staff, and Tuskegee Supporters. No new Board members should be seated until these changes are made.

PLEASE SIGN & SHARE NOW to begin the process of ending the crisis.
