Work continues on options for Marlboro’s future
The Strategic Options Task Force–comprised of the board chair, the president, four trustees, two faculty members, and one student–has been meeting regularly to review the options for Marlboro’s future, working closely with the Board of Trustees. While the merger with University of Bridgeport was not realized, there are several other attractive strategic partnerships that the task force is considering. These conversations with potential partners are governed by confidentiality restrictions that prevent the task force from providing any details to the Marlboro community. They will share information when the disclosure of that information does not jeopardize serious consideration of a possible partnership.
While the task force is hard at work, many individuals have been asking how they can help Marlboro College right here and now. The best way to help Marlboro at this moment is to donate to the Annual Fund, which supports student scholarships, programs, events, and other operating costs like keeping the lights on. Your gift is a concrete demonstration of your interest in Marlboro’s future, an encouragement to the task force to identity that best possible option, and ultimately a lift to the entire Marlboro community who would need to join in the effort to make the partnership succeed.
Be sure to watch this page for further announcements, which will be posted as soon as the Strategic Options Task Force is able to do so.
