Marx Comments on Accessibility in Washington Post Article


eNews: 10/19/10, Pres. Marx

President Anthony W. Marx spoke about the college’s efforts to continue to enroll students from low- and moderate-income families during the recession in a recent Sunday opinion piece. Telling columnist Steven Brint that the college was motivated by “a sense of social responsibility” to recruit undergraduates from all socioeconomic backgrounds, he added, “The big national question is: What do you do to make great education accessible to talented students whose families are not wealthy? … As a country, we have moved in the opposite direction. We won’t see the full damage [wrought by inaccessibility of higher education] for a generation, and by that time the leaders and politicians who made the prior choices will be long gone.”
