Comment on “Autonomy and Academic Freedom”: WASC’s 2010 Review of LSU by LSU Alumnus.
I am deeply disappointed to see where La Sierra’s allegiance rests. The Seventh-day Adventist Church is the OWNER, not the SPONSOR of LSU. LSU is beholden to the Church, and as the church is apparently not interested in taking action, I’m afraid that the University will have to operate autonomously from my donations.
La Sierra spits in the hand that feeds it.
Also, Educate Truth has performed an invaluable service to the members of the church (if not to the denomination itself). Over and over again, LSU and even the Pacific Union have acted like the services of Educate Truth made little if any impact and was the work of fringe radicals. That is not the case.
According to this WASC report, Educate Truth has made an impact, and I believe it was guided to this conclusion by the Holy Spirit.
Keep up your work Educate Truth!
