Antioch College invites questions, contributions and ideas about FACT via this form.

How are we going to do this? And what is the desired outcome?

Timeline? How soon can we design/build on this?

Who else? Who is included/excluded in this process?

Can we rename "assets" to partners?

Why is co-op a co-curicular asset? Isn't it part of the curricular assets?

How exactly do linkages create financial sustainability? Simply by making the school appealing?

What about IG's? Are they curricular assets?

If Comcil is a curricular asset, how can we encourage more participation when people feel so disempowered?

How does community governance fit in?

Why isn't the library an asset?

How does combining the assets build strength, solidarity, connection, and growth for the college as a whole?

What are the action steps?

How is this different than what we are already doing?

How will FACT generate income?

How will it being coordinated?

What happens if accredidation gets postponed?

How is the Antioch Review a curricular asset?

How can a student become involved with the Antioch Review?

Why do we not have more students on "the review"?

Can we teach students more co-op skills: driving, cooking, and taxes?

What is the plan moving forward? Timeline?

What if no one signs up to participate?

What if we already have programs in development?

Have we ever considered charging admission to the Glen?

How can we use the glen in the curriculum?

How better can we utilize the spaces we have in the science/arts building?

Have plans been made at which steps will require funding first?

Will this facilitate changes in academic calendar?

I'm curious about whether or not this will only be supplied to a select area or if FACT affects everybody. Will this development be campus collective?

I like the idea of integrating college assets into the curriculum but it doesn't seem like an actual plan for a transistion to a post-accreditation Antioch. Is there a more fully developed plan? To

what degree will the assets be integrated?

What will the process look like to incorporate the assets into the curriculum?

How will everyone know what kinds of partners are possible?

What is the design-build workshop? What will we do?

Will new classes/credit gaining opportunities be created or will this be incorporated into existing classes?

Can we partially open the old art building to partial "occupancy" permit to activate the space and open up a space for summer artist studio residency for building the program, reputation, and potential?

How flexible is this framework?

Can we make radical curriculum changes? (such as no grades, student taught classes, credit for worldly expereince?)

Why can't we meet in a space with appropriate seating?

It sounds like the Review is not happy about collaborating. True?

Can we bring children into the community? A day care service? A co-op for this position would be great for all.

How can we integrate 10-15 student hours a week as part of payment of room/board? See Blackburn College model.

How can we get better money to support students on co-op?

Plans of fundraising without radically changing out values?

Use of the word "assets"? Corporate institution too much?

How can co-curriculars offer classes, student jobs, and coops?

Why is co-op considered both a curricular asset and curriculum?

What will be the process for engaging the faculty to connect with the assets? (organic connections are preferred to pushing people to interact)

How will this equip students with the tools to be changemakers?

How will this connect to our mission of social justice?

How will this support students?

If only a few people are participating in the generative process (apathy at Antioch is prevalent) will the solutions still be viewed as legitimate?

How will this three year process affect the college's ability/capacity/willingness to address current and pressing issues?

What are we transitioning to?

How will students on co-op be involved?

How will we see the changes on campus?

How can we boost enrollment?

How can students be involved in ways that do not end up being detrimental to our health/well being?

The current schedule is detrimental to students' learning - There are too few quarters/they're too short. Can we move to a 4.5 or 5 year program?

How can students and staff be involved together?

Will all classes become collaborative? How?

I am still unsure about what the build model is

Would the conservation easement on the Glen Helen land allow for rebuilding of the old power plant to be a source of local sustainabile renewable energy?

Is the college going to have education classes/degrees?

How can we better involve Antioch with Glen Helen?

Will the collaboration of the different financial plan where funds pooled? What exactly does integration mean?

Where does community life fit in this framework?

Would love to hear more about the Antioch Village.

How are we going to monetize on any of these?

How do we make these student driven?

What is the plan B for FACT?

How can students participate in this process if they are not a part of the organizations?

How will the curriculum change affect students/credit load?

Would like to hear update on the Antioch Village.

Going forward are we going to be completely self sufficient?

How do you fit these diverse organizations together?

You mentioned in your intro how many colleges who are not collaborating w/ businesses following frameworks of partnering with other institutions. I am concerned that Antioch may try to do this in the future and I want to let you know that I hope that Antioch does not follow this model of higher education. See University, Inc. book.

In some ways this sounds like the business model of Antioch University - A wide range of offerings and assets under a single brand and financial structure. Is this similar in some ways other than it all takes place out of a central hub at YSO?

How will the conversation(s) be focused? Is the goal simply or primarily curricular revision?

What is the goal - the end game? Will majors be eliminated, focused - what?

How will the program be administered? Will a new person be required?

How does the faculty buy into this concept? Does it impact their curriculum?

When and how will this be communicated to alumni?

How are we integrating the assets without their losing identity? Are the assets meant to financially support the college?

Will we involve Yellow Springs residents in the process? How will trustees participate?

How are the program/proposals to be implemented - designed with such a small staff. Who are the experts?

What strategies are available to us to move the culture or separate assets into a more integrated set of relationships?

How to integrate residents of Antioch Village into the life of the College - How to use talents and experience of residents to (enrich?) the college experience for current students and adult learners?

Now that the June board meeting has passed can you tell us what their reaction(s) were to progress made so far? How might they have plans to support FACT?

At their June meeting, the Antioch College board of trustees voted to move forward with the development of Antioch College Village (ACV). ACV is part of the College’s Framework for Antioch College’s Transition (FACT). FACT is President Tom Manley’s platform for re-envisioning the future of higher education by integrating the College’s unique curricular assets like Glen Helen, WYSO 91.3 FM and the Coretta Scott King Center, to support a community of life-long learners and the fiscal health of the College.

Today, under a tent on the main lawn of Antioch College, more than 600 gathered to celebrate the second commencement since College reopened in 2011. The World House Choir sang powerful musical selections, and several students spoke about their unique experiences.

Of the 50 students who graduated, 80% graduated with academic honors with degrees in anthropology, psychology, political economy, biomedical science, environmental science, history, literature, media arts, visual arts and performance—and several self-designed majors.

Sylvia Turner ’67, a member of the Antioch College board of trustees, passed away on Wednesday, May 25.

Antioch College invites the wider community to co-design a new educational model that integrates and leverages assets like Co-op, WYSO, the Wellness Center, the energy program, the Farm and Food program, Glen Helen Nature Preserve, the Coretta Scott King Center, Antioch College Village and others, as major building blocks for learning and revenue generation. The Framework for Antioch College's Transition (FACT) will be innovative and effective in its use of the College’s resources, and consistent with the College's historic emphasis on applied, rigorous education in service to finding new and better ways of living in the world.

The new framework must address the educational and financial challenges and opportunities of the times, including questions of durability, resilience, access, affordability, equity, inclusion and diversity.  FACT will also move the College to a more synergistic use of its intellectual, financial and natural resources, resulting in financial durability, curricular distinction and an outstanding student experience.

To learn more about the process, see the FACT FAQs and design brief

…A Miscellany from a Little Magazine in a Little Town in Ohio

The national Center for Food Safety (CFS) celebrates Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio for becoming a designated neonicotinoid-free campus. This recognition comes from the BEE Protective Campaign, a program led by Center for Food Safety, and Beyond Pesticides, which aims to protect bees and other pollinators from harmful pesticides like neonicotinoids.
