Subcommittee Hearing, TSU Internal Audit Dispel Grade-Changing Allegations

NASHVILLE (TSU News Service) – Tennessee State University and the Tennessee Board of Regents met today with the Senate Higher Education Subcommittee in a public hearing to address allegations of wrongful and inappropriate grade changes by University administrators.

During the two-hour hearing called by Subcommittee Chairman Senator Jim Summerville (R-Dickson), TSU academic and administrative officials, internal audit staff, and TBR officials provided testimony after local and national media publicized one TSU faculty member’s allegations of grade changes by University administrators without faculty consent. Dr. Jane Davis, an English professor at the University who made the allegations, was also present at the hearing.


Based on comparison of the actual grades awarded by the faculty to the grades recorded in the students’ transcripts in Banner, there was no indication that any ‘fraudulent grades’ were entered for the students.”
