College sees progress in enrollment, fundraising
“The (enrollment) trend line was downward, so at a minimum we needed to halt that,” said Marlboro College President Kevin Quigley in a recent article in vtdigger.com. “We’ve halted the downward, and we’ve got some modest but significant uptick.”
The article cites a nearly 50 percent increase in deposits compared to the same time last year, in part due to the success of the Renaissance Scholars Program, and the most successful annual fundraiser in its history, raising more than $2 million.
“From today’s vantage point, I think the future looks very good,” said Montpelier attorney Dick Saudek, chairman of the college’s board of trustees. “With any small liberal arts college, there is always these days a good deal of concern. But Marlboro seems to be very much on the upswing.”
