Very good interview. Dr. Bietz was very diplomatic in laying out the challenges facing the NAD colleges and universities, along with possible solutions, including dire predictions if these solutions are not attempted. My prediction is two or three institutions will meet the same fate as AUC. This is one of the possible outcomes Dr Bietz predicts.

Interesting interview with the “Polyanna” fellow! Thank you, Alexander!

Too late too late. The SDA education system is about to close its doors, while we do business as usual.
