The announcement should come about 11 a.m. according to UWA President Richard Holland.

Holland has been in Atlanta since Saturday attending the four-day SACS conference and told The Times on Friday he was "confident we’ll get good news."

According to a preliminary report released last month from SACS, Holland’s confidence is well-grounded.
