Exposes Cabrini College for its Decision Not to Renew Dzik’s
NBC10’s sports wrap-up on the 6 p.m. Saturday, February 19, 2005
telecast and the Noon Sunday, February 20, 2005 telecast threw in
their two cents regarding Cabrini College’s decision not to renew
John Dzik’s contract.

"I wish I was writing to you under more
positive circumstances, as opposed to the serious concerns
raised over the appearance of the articles on John Dzik and
his reported dismissal by Cabrini College. The fact that these
articles got to the point of appearing throughout the Philadelphia
media, and then forwarded well beyond, is very disappointing.
After reading the articles, what is even more disconcerting
is the seeming lack of strategy in handling and addressing
a personnel situation (which I am sure has many sides to it)
-- that now has grown into the perception of a bigger issue
by many who are speculating and commenting negatively on the
treatment of not only a long time employee, but the longstanding
tradition he represents at the College - especially in his
advocacy for students, particularly minority students."
Cabrini Releases Middle States Meeting Schedule; College Community Invited
In an e-mail sent out to the entire campus community, President Iadarola
announced the dates and times of meetings with the Middles States Evaluation
Committee on March 14, 15 and 16. Several of the meetings are open to staff and
students, including the final exit interview which is open to the entire campus
An Open Staff Forum will be held in the Mansion Dining Room from 3-4 p.m. on
Monday, March 14. An Open Student Forum will be held in the Mansion Dining Room
from 4-5 p.m. on Tuesday, March 15 and the entire campus community has been
invited to attend the Exit Interview with the Middle States Evaluation Team in
the Widener Lecture Hall from 11 a.m. to noon on Wednesday, March 16.
A conference founded by Dzik, the Cavaliers won eight PAC banners during his
tenure, including an unprecedented six-straight from the conference's inception
in 1992 to 1998. In addition to Dzik, five Cavaliers were recognized by the
conference, including the PAC's Rookie of the Year, freshman Jeff Dailey.
Seniors Ty Teasley and Messiah Reames were named to the second-team, while
sophomore Jim McMahon received honorable mention. Senior Dan Clemens was named
to the All-PAC Sportsmanship team.
It is interesting to note that Dzik may become the first collegiate coach ever
to be named his conference's coach of the year and not to have his contract
renewed for the subsequent season.
The complete release can be found in the below link.

was a unqualified success... thanks for your support!

for hosting the after party.
Dzik Story Remains a Issue to the Print
LINK TO IN THE NEWS
To date there have been many articles written
about Coach Dzik and the "Cabrini Controversy." For
your convenience, we have compiled all articles
written to date on this site. The link above will
take you to this section. Three new articles have been
written this week.
Unfortunately it is not known in what
context this statement was made by the President – the
current Dzik crisis, the cutting of faculty benefits
or how any of this relates to the Middle States reaccredidation
process which Cabrini is currently going through. None
the less, why does the President feel that these topics
are not considered student issues and more importantly
why was the question being dodged?
As Loquitur’s Shawn Rice clearly states
in his editorial regarding the above quote, “the Loquitur's
responsibilities also demand that all Cabrini matters
whether it relates to students, faculty or administration
should be considered and examined on how they affect
the entire community.” (This letter can be found on
this site in Media Coverage under Defining Loquiturs
Purpose for Iadarola).
“It would be very hypocritical of me to feel the way that I do and then ask (my
fellow alumni) for money for the College. I can no longer do that since I,
myself, won’t be giving any money to the College, at least not while President
Iadorola continues to treat her employees the way that she does. Mother Cabrini
and Mother Ursula taught me that. I’ve seen too much of that through the years.
I came to know Dr. Iadarola through my involvement at Cabrini: SGA, Campus
Ministry, the academic convocations, and being Class Agent. Yes, she has done
so much for the College, the appearance, and the statistics. Well, statistics
are just numbers and it’s not all about appearance; it’s what’s inside that
counts. I’ve ignored her mistreatment and disrespect of her staff long enough.
Because of this, I too feel disrespected and mistreated. It is therefore my
wish to resign my position as Class Agent for the Class of 2002,” Bartosik said
in her letter which is posted on the “Your Letters” page of this website.
In addition to Bartosik, Nicole Faison, ’02, resigned her position from the
Alumni Diversity Committee; John Aivazoglou, ’88, resigned from the Golf
Committee; and David Kerchner, ’94, Jeff Hines, ’91, Rachel Slaughter, ’89,
from the Alumni Board.
Cabrini’s New CORE Values? Administration Can’t Be Bothered with Responding to
LINK TO SPIN ZONE
Michael Fallon, ’87, has sent in two letters, the later of which received a form
e-mail response from Vice President of Institutional Advancement Robin Moll.
Except the form response was not even sent to Fallon from Moll, instead Moll
had her assistant Kathy Lennon forward the response from her to Fallon.
It looks as if Moll has more important items in which to attend than the alumni.
