$900,000 Settlement Ends Suit Against Valdosta State University
Jul 25 15
A settlement was reached in July 2015 in a years-long federal lawsuit filed by a former Valdosta State University student regarding violation of his First Amendment rights. The $900,000 settlement to be paid by the state insurer ends years of legal proceedings stemming from Hayden Barnes' 2008 lawsuit against the university and then-president Ronald Zaccari, as well as the Board of Regents for the state's university system. Barnes was expelled from Valdosta State in 2007 after the student protested the construction of two parking garages the president supported. A Facebook post by Barnes objecting to the garages was deemed a threatening document, and Barnes was labeled a danger to the school. With FIRE's help, Barnes sued. A federal jury awarded him $50,000 in 2013 after finding that Valdosta State had violated his due process rights. In January, a federal appeals court reversed a lower court's dismissal of the First Amendment case, ultimately allowing for settlement.

Valdosta State University Signs Articulation Agreements with Tallahassee Community College
Feb 18 15
Valdosta State University (VSU) signed articulation agreements with Tallahassee Community College (TCC), simplifying student transition between the two institutions of higher education. The Pathways Program agreement will allow TCC students with an Associate in Science to maximize the transfer of credits in order to complete either a Bachelor of Science in organizational leadership or a Bachelor of Applied Science in human capital performance in two years or less at VSU, noted Andy Clark, vice president for Enrollment, Marketing, and Communications at VSU. The Transfer Admission Guarantee agreement will provide assurance to TCC students with an Associate in Arts that they will be admitted to VSU, provided they meet the grade point average requirement. From that point, they will be able to begin the pursuit of one or more of VSU's 100-plus degrees, certificates, and/or endorsements. The articulation agreements with TCC are a continuation of VSU's efforts to attract and to educate more Florida students. During the fall of 2013, VSU expanded an existing policy to waive out-of-state tuition for residents of Leon, Jefferson, Columbia, Baker, Hamilton, Madison, and Nassau counties; a previous policy offered tuition waivers only to residents of the latter three. The Pathways Program centers on the priorities of Complete College America, a national initiative developed to increase the number of people earning a college degree. Locally, it is a collaboration between VSU and partner institutions to allow students with approved associate degrees to complete a bachelor's degree in two years or less. Pathways students can expect 51 or more transferable credit hours to be applied to either of the two articulated programs -- the Bachelor of Science in organizational leadership or the Bachelor of Applied Science in human capital performance.
