The Antioch University Board of Trustees announced that a decision had been made to keep the Antioch College campus in Yellow Springs open.

Key elements of the agreement include:

Returning to the Ohio Board of Regents to certify remaining open

A change in the role of the Chancellor, making it a collaborative position with the Alumni Board and with no veto powers.

A new president will be selected jointly by University and Alumni Boards.

 

A commitment by the Alumni Board to raise and disburse directly to the College for use as it and the Board saw fit, the sum of $62.6 million dollars over the next 3 fiscal years. Those monies to arrive as follows:

  1. 2$2 million within 10 days
  2. $4.6 million by December 15, 2007
  3. $12 million by May 31, 2008
  4. $25 million by June 30, 2009
  5. $19 million for fiscal year 2010

Expect some celebrating to be taking place today and tonight in the village of Yellow Springs and on the Antioch campus.

11/04 update//A friend sent me  a link to an article about Antioch that appears  in the notorious Wingnut journal, the Weakly Standard [helmed by the grand puba of Wingnuts himself, William Kristol].  Granting its Wingnut bias as a given, this chronicling of one version of the schools long downward slide is fascinating in its detail. http://www.weeklystandard.com/Content/Public/Articles/000/000/014/306jqecg.asp?pg=1
