Liberal Education after Antioch
Gregorek, Jean
Academe, v95 n6 p35-40 Nov-Dec 2009
When the Antioch University board of trustees announced in June 2007 that it was suspending the operations of the historic Antioch College as of June 2008, the college's faculty, staff, students, and alumni mourned. Then, as Mother Jones recommended, they began to organize. Their goal was to reclaim the college and its progressive educational mission from decades of dysfunctional governance. This is the story of Antioch College in Exile, the project that became the Nonstop Liberal Arts Institute, an unusual one-year experiment in higher education and one of several strategies employed to save Antioch College from extinction--strategies that appear to have been successful.
