Norfolk State at one time cared how they are viewed in the public eyes. They have chosen time and time again some of the worst leadership. You must do your homework. Why would you look at the leadership look at the followers if the leaders are poor but hide behind walls you can see how the workers are. Remember they follow orders and never speak.

There were so many knowledgeable staff that are in the wrong positions. Customer service reps who should be supervisors and supervisors that didn't know customer service. The house keepers that ran businesses in the past and the bosses that never ran a business. NO creativity just cut and pastes colleagues work and show the appearance that it is personal creations. This will not prepare you for board room meetings when you have to account for your work. Staff members in extra marital affairs, intoxicated staff, goofers for grades. I saw a past post on theft. This campus is rated high on theft. Some may be from individual fault; But the rest back to leadership. The police on campus after meeting them are burnt out. Some of their backgrounds are amazing but they are not being used, the police leadership has over a decade been poor.

They had one female chief who only held a HS education, now this is a college, they hired a Former Norfolk officer who took 2nd in charge slot great dresser but not police looking I used to see this guy in the club, now this guy is married what is this about. He is now the Chief of Police most chiefs teach college level and even attended a FBI police Chief academy but he does have a degree from NSU so he is alumni. They did hire a guy from newport news he had the best credentials but I guess they ran him out… Is this what education gets you… The officers they have, do not do police work.. they are not scene I was always seeing them in buildings walking around while there was accidents on campus or speeders in the street. I talked to other department staff they get paid to do security work and security officers which they have give out parking tickets or sit at the gates. This is what education gets you… So they officer with credentials and training do not lead they follow.. The current leadership is failed but in charge.. How is this possible. Now not all their officers are able leaders there may be 6 or so the others will not tell the truth. So bad staff, lying police leadership, and poor life lessons taught what are we saying…

Go to the university sometimes talking to the person behind the wood desk may not get you the truth… the guy cutting the grass may be the one that really can help you… If it wasn't for a staff member who cared I would be in a sad situation or worst. And to the Board who replaced the past president who was put out for behavior unbecoming this is a sign of putting wrong person in charge. The federal government calls this "brass crunching" when the state worker can handle the job of a supervisor give them a shot before the university falls under. The current leaders need new blood.

questionWhy is there such a pattern of poor leadership. Abuse of authority, wasted state funds, high turn over, etc. refer to Dr. Wilson (abuse)Dr. Meyers (personal relationships to waste of police power driving her to get cigarettes, to poor department heads)staff drinking on campus, this is some issues why some students have first hand info I was told so why should I live on campus when I can live at ODU housing.
responseTrue there are more robberies on campus, vandalism, theft, and we fried the police chief and support staff… in a town hall meeting… I guy got shot on campus since then they say it was fire works well he went to the hospital and was treated for gun shot wounds, the police still are under staffed we need them to be paid and staffed with more man power all i see is security n black shirts and no police. The administration need to change… And yes the police chief is scared I saw it in his face hes on campus more now than ever. The police has less than 12 on campus the rest are secretaries and supervisors behind desks.. They call officers for everything… I was present when they called a officer over to check elevator they are not trained for that so I asked a police officer of Norfolk at 7-11 he said what police officer does that. So yes they are poorly led and my friend was robbed on campus and Norfolk PD was more help for him than campus pd. They fire or lose the good officers but keep bad police leaders… ODU and other schools are light years from this modern plantation…
commentModern Plantation that is Funny LOL… I thought they got a new president… I hope she doesn't go out like the last one… smoking cigarettes on the porch… police escorts to 7-11 to get cigarettes he held the door open for her I was blown away.. Someone told me she messed with some regular dude from norfolk who used to drive the NSU presidents car in a known drug area… so plantation i do not know… but corrupt leadership from wilson hall to police chief.. yes I promote events in the area to help with extra money for school and yes the chief of police is at the club dancing with women other than his wife because he is with different women.. but he is not the only one there are officers in charge that do the same thing with other staff on campus affairs having sex in the building and drinking on campus… how can you violate students for drinking but you drink on campus and in uniform… I have talked with alot of people who have direct knowledge I even seen pictures of the abuse of authority so maybe they should resign because if these pics and issues get pushed it would be bad… You got one guy who his wife works on campus and he hooking up with House keepers and women in other buildings… Sad they just had a bad cop on the news well add these guys tooo..
