Arnold L. Crump came to Xavier after teaching on the faculty of Southern University Baton Rouge and Jackson State University, and teaching courses at Syracuse University. Working as a consultant on projects at the New Orleans Convention Center, East Jefferson General Hospital, Northeastern State University School of Nursing, and the Louisiana State Police Academy, he also brought to Xavier a wealth of experience in program development and facilities design. Arnold has done training programs for the FAA, NewYork State External High School Diploma Program, and Indonesian TV Mangers. He has been a fellow with the American Council on Education (ACE), Okoboji Educational Media Leadership Council, and the Southern Fellowships Fund (Council of Southern Universities). His work in the area of educational technology and training led him to be selected to serve on a White House council (Carter Administration) to explore Minority Ownership in Common Carrier Related Communications Businesses. Early in his tenure at Xavier Arnold managed a $250,000 grant that facilitated the upgrade of Mass Communication production equipment to digital formats. Within five years of completing this upgrade, four of the Mass Communication graduates had been offered positions as news producers at middle market TV stations. TV Production had reached the level of 20-hours of original programming when Katrina hit. During the Post Katrina recovery and rebuilding phase of the program and school Arnold has continued his interest in Message Design through his work with production students as they learn to create and direct television shows.
