New chair for board
- Published: January 26, 2012
The Antioch College Board of Trustees this week appointed Frances Degen Horowitz, ’54, as board chair, replacing Lee Morgan, ’66. Morgan will remain on the board as vice-chair, according to a press release, but will focus on fundraising.
A current board member, Horowitz, of New York City, is a prominent child psychologist who most recently served as president of the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. Before that she was dean of the Graduate School at the University of Kansas-Lawrence.
Also this week, the board announced that it will extend the four-year full-tuition Horace Mann fellowships to members of next fall’s Antioch College incoming class.
“We don’t want economics to be an impediment to a high-quality liberal arts education,” Antioch College President Mark Roosevelt said in the press release. “By providing four-year, full-tuition scholarships, we make attending Antioch College a realistic option for the best and brightest students, regardless of their family’s economic situation.”
