Erskine College and the leaders of its sponsoring denomination, the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church, have reached a compromise over control of the college, The Greenville News reported. Under the compromise, a church order to remove many trustees will be lifted, while various lawsuits will be dropped. Some church leaders have been frustrated by what they see as a failure of the college to uphold religious teachings, while many faculty members and alumni are concerned that the church leaders were trying to limit academic freedom. Erskine recently named a new president, David A. Norman, who has said he believed compromise was possible.
