A professors' group at Coppin State University said Monday that it shared a review committee's improvement goals for the traditionally black college, but questioned why the reviewers didn't address certain funding issues nor a perceived lack of oversight by university system leaders. Last month, a committee appointed by the university system's Board of Regents recommended significant changes to the struggling institution, including a greater selectivity in admissions. The recommendations are meant to reverse Coppin's poor graduation rate - the worst in the state at 15 percent - and enrollment shortfall, among other problems.
