Baltimore International College will file a "request for reconsideration" with the Middle States Commission, the agency that is taking away the college's accreditation Aug. 31. The request asks that about 100 students who are close to completing a culinary or hospitality degree be allowed to complete the work this fall. The remaining students would be given the opportunity to finish at an accredited institution that would merge with BIC. The college said Monday that it "is in conversation" with two out-of-state institutions about a merger.

The former president of Baltimore International College is suing the embattled culinary and hospitality school for $5 million, contending that he is not receiving agreed-upon retirement benefits. Roger Chylinski, who served as president of the college from 1980 until last year, says his contract promised a monthly benefit of $17,000 from the time of his retirement until death. The civil lawsuit, filed in Baltimore City Circuit Court, says that the college "precipitously ceased paying" Chylinski in May 2010, just after the board of trustees asked for his resignation.

If University of Baltimore President H. Mebane Turner is becoming known as the "Octopus of Mount Vernon" because of all the buildings his school has acquired near its midtown campus, is Roger Chylinski becoming the Squid of the Inner Harbor?It's starting to look that way.As part of an ongoing expansion effort to accommodate a fast-growing student body, the president of the Baltimore International Culinary College recently took control of two more building complexes in the heart of Baltimore's financial district: the former Merchants Club at 206 E. Redwood St. and the former Stark Office Supply buildings at 202, 204 and 206 Water St.The acquisitions follow moves in recent years by the college to purchase the building at 25 S. Calvert St. and the former Charles E. Weglein School No. 2 at Pratt Street and Central Avenue in Little Italy.

Baltimore International College is exploring possible mergers with other institutions and weighing a possible appeal in its attempts to forestall closing because of lost accreditation, the college's Board of Trustees announced Thursday afternoon. The culinary and hospitality management college learned at the end of last week that it would lose its accreditation from the Middle States Commission on Higher Education on Aug. 31. Without the accreditation, the downtown college would be unable to receive federal financial aid and would face an uphill battle to continue operating, President Edgar Schick said this week.

As the end of the school year approaches, students steel themselves for that inevitable summation of their academic performance - the report card. So, the timing seems appropriate for Eats to issue a report card for Bay Atlantic Seafood Restaurant, an eatery that's run by Baltimore International College, which offers programs in the culinary arts here and in Ireland. Housed in the Mount Vernon Hotel downtown, the restaurant is staffed by work-study students and professionals. A student is the executive chef and so is the baker.

College, not president, buying propertyThe Aug. 3 article, "Parking lot dispute causes uproar in Little Italy," is grossly inaccurate and a total misrepresentation of the facts.The article identifies throughout our college president, Roger Chylinski, as the owner of the parking lot and buildings in Little Italy. It is the Baltimore International Culinary College, which is a not-for-profit, regionally accredited, post-secondary institution, that purchased the property in Little Italy in 1989.

If you didn't know that February is black history month, you would get a clue from the number of art shows dealing with the black experience currently on view.From the top floor of the Baltimore International Culinary College to the basement of the Maryland Institute, College of Art, Baltimore is abloom. But all is not equal here -- a sampling of four of these shows revealed widely differing degrees of success.Angela Franklin, a Baltimore artist, had a good idea for "Abstract in Black" at School 33. It was to be a show of African-American artists who work in non-representative ways, because, says Franklin, "no longer can the responsibility of creating solely representational images which chronicle the 'black experience' be placed upon the backs of African-American artists."
