Trustees appoint new professor, review endowment
DANVILLE, KY- The Centre College board of trustees met Friday, April 14, on the campus. The trustees confirmed a faculty appointment and reviewed information about the college endowment.
The board confirmed the appointment of Matthew Hallock to a tenure-track faculty position in the dramatic arts program. Hallock has been a visiting faculty member at the college since 1997.
The board reviewed the results of a national study which showed that Centre's endowment earnings have ranked among the top 10 percent of major U.S. colleges and universities over the past 10 years. Centre earned an average 14.9 percent during the 10 years, as compared with a national average of 12.9 percent. The report was compiled by the National Association of College and University Business Officers (NACUBO) and was based on official audit figures from 467 schools.
Centre's endowment has a current market value around $162 million.
In another report to the board, the college wellness center announced that it now offers on campus travel clinics for students participating in Centre's overseas programs. Students can obtain at the clinics all immunizations required for international travel. More than 200 Centre students study overseas each year in programs sponsored by the college.
The trustees elected board officers for the coming year, re-electing the current slate: J. David Grissom, chairman; Nelson D. Rodes, vice chairman; James D. Rouse, secretary; John A. Roush, president; and Yvonne York Morley, assistant secretary.
