Inauguration celebrations delay Trustee decisions

By David McCabe

Kenyon’s Board of Trustees met last weekend for their annual fall meeting. However, due to a “condensed” schedule to accommodate the Inauguration, the Board did not pass any major policy proposals, according to Chairman Barry Schwartz ’70.

“It was a very productive series of committee meetings, which is where most of the good work of the Board gets done,” he said.

Conversations did take place regarding student concerns about housing affordability, including the gap between housing costs covered by financial aid and the cost of apartment rooms.

“Those discussions began in several committees, and those discussions will continue at the Board level and with the administration, and hopefully there will be something a bit more concrete before the Board, if not in February, certainly before the end of the year,” Schwartz said.
