Selma University aiming to improve enrollment, finances
SELMA, Ala. (AP) — The new president of historically Black Selma University says he wants to get the small school back on solid ground.
President Eddie Hill, Jr says addressing the school’s ongoing financial troubles and increasing enrollment are top priorities. And Hill says getting the school’s ability to receive federal student aid reinstated will go a long way.
The church-affiliated school has struggled with finances and enrollment for years, and its accreditation was placed on probation earlier this year. Hill took over as president this summer and says he dreams of having 200 or 300 students on campus.
Another historically Black school located in Selma, Concordia College, closed in 2018.
