Berea Debates Budgets and Values
February 23, 2010

Berea College -- known for its strong academic programs for which students pay no tuition, but hold campus jobs -- has been having a debate about its finances and values. The board is getting ready to approve a call for larger enrollments and some modifications in academic and work programs, in light of the impact of endowment losses on the heavily endowment-dependent institution. But as The Lexington Herald-Leader reported, much of the discussion on campus has been dominated by a student proposal that top administrators' salaries not exceed six times the salaries of the lowest paid workers -- an idea that administrators have rejected, saying it would limit the ability to attract top talent.
