Story posted November 12, 2008

President Barry Mills was quoted in the November 11, 2008, edition of the Washington Post, on how the College is handling the country's financial crisis.

Mills was one of a handful of college presidents interviewed for the article, "Struggling Economy Puts Colleges in a Tight Spot."

"Into the future, we are going to be doing less capital construction, and we will be only hiring faculty if we have the endowment funds to support them," said Mills in the article.

"I think it is important to note that when we talk about strategically cutting back, we are not talking about cutting back on academic programs, and we are not talking about cutting back on financial aid."
