Montgomery College has announced that the campus will no longer be accepting applications for the 2017-2018 academic year.
This is because the school’s new Diversity Officer, who will be named Mary L. Cusack, has been identified as an “Aunties Anne.”
The college announced that this change has been approved by the Board of Regents and the College Council.
A statement from Cusak reads: “It was my privilege to serve as President of the Montgomery College Board of Trustees and its President Mary L Cusacks.
I am thrilled to be joining the Board, and I look forward to making our campuses a place where all students, staff, and community members feel welcome and valued.”
The College Council also approved the new Diversity Commissioner, Mary L A. Smith, and the hiring of a new Diversity Advisor, Elizabeth J. Jones.
CUSACK will serve as Diversity Officer for the college, while Smith will serve on the College Diversity Council.
The Board of Directors will hold a meeting to vote on the appointment of a Diversity Commissioner.
Montgomery College is the largest and oldest college in Alabama and has a population of approximately 2,400 students.
The college has been in existence since 1889.
The College of Arts and Sciences will not be accepting new applications for 2019-2020 academic year, however, students with outstanding applications for next year may apply.
The school announced that all students will be able to apply for admission in April 2019, however there is no word on when this will be confirmed.
“We are grateful to the many students, faculty, staff and community who are working together to build the campus that is best for our students and the students and faculty of the College of the Arts and Science.
We look forward with optimism to welcoming all students in 2019-20 and to welcoming students of all backgrounds to the University of Montgomery,” Cusk said in a statement.
Montgomery High School is also expected to be accepting applicants for 2019.
In March, the school announced plans to transition from a “traditional” public high school to a “diversity-based” high school.
Students will no be able apply to the public high schools for the 2019-2019 academic year and instead will have to apply to a separate program for students with disabilities.
The announcement came after a long-standing schoolwide debate over the future of Montgomery High.
The issue of school desegregation has been one of the main issues for the school, which began as a public charter in the 1960s.
Montgomery, which had about 6,000 students at its peak in 2011, has about 3,000.
Montgomery is a historically black school with more than 70 percent black students.
At the time, Montgomery’s president, C.T. Clements, said the school would not allow any students of color to attend the school.
The controversy, which led to a lawsuit and a Supreme Court ruling, prompted Montgomery College to announce that the school was taking a step back from accepting applications.
Cusesack, who is also a professor of English, is the first African American to serve on Cusaks board.
The decision to retire Cusks term on the board came after Cuskins nomination to the board was denied in a vote by the College Trustees, who were majority African American.
CUSA has a long history of racial diversity at the school and Cusacking will be the first Black woman to serve.
Montgomery County, Alabama is the fourth-largest county in the U.S., and the fourth largest city in the country.
The state has more than 8,700 public school students, according to the American Council on Education.
Montgomery has been the subject of two school desexterity cases: in 2016, two black students sued the school over the way they were treated after being denied admission and a lawsuit in 2013, in which an African American teacher sued the college and the school for not offering adequate academic support to students of different races.
