Wilberforce University near Xenia is renovating its campus buildings and making policy changes as it fights to maintain its accreditation.

Members of the Higher Learning Commission are on campus this week to find out whether leaders at the nation’s oldest historically black private university have taken the necessary steps to address low enrollment and financial deficits.

Wilberforce University President Algeania Freeman spoke with WOSU and Ohio Public Radio member station reporter Debbie Holmes.
