This oversight department needs a thorough cleaning, from Stanley Colvin on down.

...
In 2011 Stanley S. Colvin of the Department of State was "quietly replaced" by Mr. Rick Ruth as you will read below.
...
In mid-2011, Colvin was removed from that position and given the title of "strategic adviser" to the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
Several critics of Colvin agreed to talk about him, but only on condition of confidentiality because they did not want to risk antagonizing the State Department. "He had what I'd call a cavalier attitude," said one, who was particularly disappointed at what he called Colvin's tolerance of SWT sponsors that became "visa mills. That phrase describes organizations that provided little oversight and guidance to the SWT participants from whom the sponsors collect fees. The State Department acknowledged the problem in the spring of 2011 when it said some sponsors were so detached from their young charges that they became "mere purveyors of J-visas.
Another critic said Colvin had a tendency to be "dismissive" of those who sought to engage him in dialogue about SWT. He drew this bottom line under Colvin's stewardship: "There wasn't the proper oversight." Responding to the criticism, Colvin said his record at the State Department, including several awards and a steady rise to the prestigious Senior Executive Service, showed otherwise. He said that in just the last five years of his 25-year career as a regulator of exchange programs, "I have drafted, reviewed, edited, or signed more than 25,000 administrative actions and had one-one-one contact with literally thousands of individuals. I answer my own phone and have an open door policy." The long record of criticism of the federal government's management of SWT and other exchanges in the J visa category begins well before Colvin joined the USIA in 1990.
...
Now Stanley Colvin has been replaced by Rick Ruth.
...
Responding to the interviewer's observation that Colvin was widely regarded as a laissez-faire manager, Ruth said flatly, "I am not a laissez-faire guy."

That point was driven home by Stanley Colvin, who at that time was director of State's Office of Exchange Coordination and Designation. In a Hartford Courant story about Polish SWT workers who were complaining about "draconian" working and living conditions at a Six Flags amusement park in Massachusetts, Colvin told the newspaper, "These programs do not operate under Fulbright-Hays authority - period, the end."7
