Hampshire Gets New Leader Amidst Financial Uncertainty

As Hampshire College continues on the path of an uncertain future, it now has a new president. 

Miriam Nelson resigned in a letter to the college's community on Friday, saying she believes her presence is proving to be a distraction. 

So far this year, the school has announced that it is seeking a long-term strategic partner, that it would only accept a limited incoming class, and anticipates staff layoffs. 

Former Hampshire treasurer Kenneth Rosenthal has been named interim president. A third member of the Hampshire College Board of Trustees, Kim Saal, also resigned on Friday.
