5 Private Liberal-Arts Colleges Will Share a Professor

Five private liberal-arts colleges—four in West Virginia and one in Virginia—will share a remedial-mathematics professor, and two of them will share an American-history professor, in an effort to trim costs while maintaining a high quality of instruction, reports The Charleston Gazette. College officials told the newspaper that the collaboration, which is financed by a $150,000 grant from the Teagle Foundation and will involve both distance learning and face-to-face classroom instruction, will free up more math professors to teach higher-level courses and allow the use of a full-time professor rather than adjuncts for the history course. The colleges involved are: Bethany College, Davis & Elkins College, Emory & Henry College, the University of Charleston, and West Virginia Wesleyan College.
