    The A&M-Commerce Vocal Division mourns... - Texas A&M University-Commerce Choirs | Facebook

    Real schools, like my Alma Mater Texas A & M Commerce, highly value their alumnae and community member singers. Melissa Logan has destroyed the Dallas College Richland Campus Choir program. I left Richland with a vocal scholarship to Texas A & M Commerce. I had that scholarship for 4 years while completing my B.M. and earning hours toward two Master's Degrees. She kicked me out of my own choir twice and threw me out of Opera Workshop as well. Since when were degreed sopranos not qualified to sing in Freshman and Sophomore level classes?

    Logan has run off all of the community members and made it crystal clear that alumnae are not welcome in their own choir. That coupled with her predatory and totally incompetent advising should have had her canned a long time ago. The program is a complete embarrassment and disgrace. Why should we taxpayers fund a program that is harming the young students and that we cannot benefit from?

    I am thrilled to announce Credo Community Choir, the group I founded 9 years ago whose mission is to unite people through song, has been invited to perform at the 2021 Texas Choral Directors Association
    Statewide Conference!

    This is a huge honor and reflects the hard work and commitment of our members. #Proud
    ACDA here I come. Too bad Dallas College Richland Campus does not have the choir program of the high caliber it did when I was there......

    Texas A & M Commerce, my Alma Mater, is performing the music of Dede Duson. She taught piano at Richland for many years and is a highly respected choral composer. Her music is absolutely gorgeous. She is the treasured Texas composer from my generation. Her music is a choral staple. The Richland music library has dozens of her pieces.

    I owe her such a huge debt of gratitude for all that she taught me. Thanks to her I not only went in with a vocal scholarship, but I passed Junior piano barriers with the piano performance majors as well my first semester at Texas A & M Commerce, which allowed me to join the piano majors and take organ.





    Alliance Music Publications Inc. - Dede Duson
    Dede Duson is a Texan with music degrees from the University of Texas at Austin and the University of Houston. She taught piano and theory for many years, served as a church organist, and accompanied various groups including the Houston Symphony Chorus, Texas All-state Choir, and Mesquite Civic Chorus. Her compositions and arrangements are both secular and sacred, a cappella and accompanied, with treble and bass voicings as well as SATB.
    Melissa Logan has no respect for the history of the college and those that built the program. I am going to do everything in my power to see the program built back to the level of excellence that Richland was known for and see that alumnae are welcomed back to their beloved home by a director that cares for the program as I and so many others do.

    "Hostile environment for faculty"
    Current Employee - Faculty in Dallas, TX
    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO
    I have been working at Dallas College full-time
    Pros
    Was a great district before reorganization.
    Cons
    They hired a consulting group to demolish the entire district and its 50+ years of dedicated work by faculty, staff, and administrators. This was a “take control” reorganization fueled by a negative propaganda campaign and faculty are now seen as cogs in a wheel. Full time faculty are hired hands in the new dallas college structure and treated disrespectfully.
    Advice to Management
    They must have been trained to dislike faculty and to show their disdain by ignoring or placating faculty. They do not see faculty as partners.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
    I have been working at Dallas College full-time for more than 5 years
    Pros
    Great coworkers, decent pay, good benefits, good students
    Cons
    Since the restructuring of this organization, there has been little to NO communication regarding where current employees stand or how thw structure will work. Upper leadership pretends to know what they are planning but everything has been so piece meal that current employees are working I the dark. We are also expected to do an inordinate amount of work with no clear outlines or training of how it is supposed to be done or why. Things are made more complicated than they need to be and the students are suffering for it. People have not been told they will be fired; but, instead, told they need not apply for the new jobs if they don't meet the new qualifications. These are people with Years worth of experience and knowledge being thrown out without a significant warning that this would happen. Leadership should be ashamed of what they are doing to their employees during this time where it is almost IMPOSSIBLE to find a job. They bungled this entire process and still, refuse to say thank you for the work employees continue to do despite that most will be fired in less than a month.
    Advice to Management

    Have a soul.

    "Just Another Cog in the Dallas College Machine"
    Current Employee - Faculty Member
    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
    I have been working at Dallas College full-time for more than 3 years
    Pros
    My colleagues are supportive and the reason I’m still sane.
    Cons
    Since becoming “one college” (on 7 distinct campuses, faculty can no longer rely on teaching extra classes (extra service) to make up for our dismally low salaries We were recently told that extra service is a “privilege,” not a “right” as the administration set us up for not being able to teach the number of sections we’d previously taught. I was hired within the past few years, and though I had 16+ years of higher education teaching experience (full-time), they said they could only compensate me for 8-10 years’ experience as the new hiring policy capped out experience. I can’t afford to pay rent on my base salary.
    Advice to Management
    Morale is low. People are losing their jobs under this new one college hierarchy as a worldwide stressor, COVID-19, is sweeping the globe. Faculty are warned their schedules may be cut, and our stress and health are suffering during the culmination of these work and worldwide events.

    Pros
    Was fun to work there.
    Cons
    Since changing to Dallas College from Dallas Community College District, the work environment has changed to micro-management style and down sizing due to elimination of jobs.
    The change to one college is a bloodbath and more changes are to come:
