The Future of Hampshire College with Trustee Kim Saal

Hampshire College will close within five years if it doesn’t find another college or university to merge with, according to Board of Trustees in-coming Chairman Kim Saal. Saal points to decreased enrollment, the increasing need for student financial aid, and an underfunded endowment as the driving forces behind college’s financial troubles. Carrie Saldo sat down with Saal to ask how he would describe Hampshire’s current financial situation, and his thoughts on the college’s future.
