American University in Dubai
Words and webpage out of sync

Recently, the executive vice president of AUD made this statement:
Whatever is taking place in the United States with the AIU has nothing to do with Dubai.

AUD's own website page on accreditation says:

The American University in Dubai is a branch campus of American InterContinental University, Atlanta, Georgia. American InterContinental University is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award Associate, Bachelor's, and Master's degrees. This umbrella accreditation includes all approved branch campuses of the University, including AUD operating in Dubai.

And that statement isn't buried; it's the first item on the page. At one point AUD was happy to claim accreditation through AIU. But when AIU's accreditor puts it on probation, AUD denies there are any consequences for AUD students. There is contradiction between

1. Saying "nothing to do with" AIU's probation by its accreditor


2. Saying that your US accreditation falls under the "umbrella accreditation of the University [AIU] and its approved branch campuses."
