President Hansen's update: Economic Climate at Bates

Following the January meeting of the Bates Board of Trustees and the February 2 meeting of the Bates Faculty, I write to share some of our most recent thinking about how best to steer the College through these uncharted economic waters. I want to reaffirm the principles and priorities articulated in my December letter, stressing again our confidence in the creativity of Bates people, the unflagging value of our mission, and the consistent strategies we will use to address both the challenges and the opportunities that lie ahead.
