A day in the life of a President on Presidents' Day.
President Cooper had a busy day yesterday. #SpringfieldCollege

Image may contain: 3 people, people smiling, people standing and suit
Mary-Beth Cooper is with Calvin Cooper and Dave Cooper.

Such a funny day......I received a few Happy President’s day messages that made me chuckle. Ran into an alum who had a powerful encounter with a student and gav...e a gift on the spot because he was moved by her generosity (she bought his muffin and coffee in line at DD earlier in the day).
Participated in the filming of a documentary of a current adult student whose journey has had many ups and downs. And now is on an upward trajectory. Coming off a weekend of many athletic wins, celebrations of our Ssbd At Sc group - remembering John Wilson,and connecting with a former student who has a daughter looking at Springfield College. On this president’s day, I feel fortunate to be here. Happy President’s Day one and all.

Great school for athletes and intellectuals. Most schools have only 10% athletes on campus. Springfield has 80%! Not only that, the school with the most coaches in the NFL on the sidelines? You guesse...d it! Springfield College. Trainers, conditioning coaches, offensive, defensive coordinators and head coaches are all represented more than any other school in the USA. Powerhouse lacrosse and volleyball teams too. Great DPT program offers a doctorate in six years. See More

Springfield College is attempting to dismiss a Professor For Teaching ‘Men In Literature

Dennis Gouws, a tenured English professor at Springfield College has been teaching a course called “Men in L...iterature since 2005. The college approved the course as a regular offering in 2010. The course is one of only about six courses in the entire nation that is not taught from within the feminist paradigm, but rather, allows students make up their own minds on the issues of gender.

But in June 2015, Dean Anne Herzog, wrote a letter to Gouws placing him on “Official Warning Status.demanding that he revise the course because an unnamed student had complained about its content because it dealt with men in literature.

Professor Gouws revised the course THREE times to met the dean's objections which she refused to give him in writing or clearly define. Professor Gouws has yet to meet with the Dean Herzog because she has refused to allow him to record the meeting or bring in an impartial witness.

Beautiful campus. Only has peer tutors. Largest financial aid awards are given to those with a 3.5 GPA which doesn't seem fair.

College attempts to oust a professor because one student complained that he taught about men's literature in a class about men's literature. Oh, the humanity! I mean, this student couldn't have just s...aid something akin to, "man, I'd like to take a course on women's literature." The administration could have said, "well here are some to choose from..." Nope, had to go and try to fire this tenured professor, instead.. Sounds like a sensible place.. See More

This is not a school it's a business. If you get an education consider yourself lucky. Run by extremely insincere and insecure opportunists.

I will spend the rest of my life laughing at anyone witha... degree from Springfield College. See More

To the president of the college,

Please please help my daughter to get her degree. I have been requesting for over 18 months. No help from college. I have paid each penny of college including what wa...s not necessary to pay. OT department did not help but gave hard time for her graduate program. See More
