Board Members

The three elements of this precept – academics, finances and physical facilities – are interwoven. Each supports the others and enables a continuing stream of creative, intellectually-alive, well-motivated students to graduate annually from the College. In addition, the Board strives to educate adults who have not previously benefited from a liberal arts education and to provide advanced learning in liberal studies to individuals at the graduate level.
