Historical Note

The Ad Hoc Committee on Admissions and Financial Aid seems to have been created in the early 1990s in response to the trends of rapidly increasing costs to institutions of higher education. The Committee reviewed admissions and financial aid statistics and trends and considered ways to improve methods of recruitment and retaining students. Committee members include Mount Holyoke College trustees Jameson Baxter, Carol Huxley, Herbert Jarvis, James Lewis, Barbara Rossotti, and Margaret Woodbury, Mount Holyoke President Elizabeth T. Kennan, and College administrators Peter Berek, Janice Gifford, Mary Jo Maydew, Pama Miller, Ellen Ortyl, Anita Smith, and Sally Trabulsi.

Scope and Contents of the Collection

Ad Hoc Committee on Admissions and Financial Aid records contain minutes and agenda, correspondence, memoranda, lists, notes, reports, and statistics concerning admissions and financial aid at Mount Holyoke College. These documents concern developing a strategy for substantially enlarging the College's pool of qualified applicants managing the increasing costs to the college and competing with peer institutions. The records include a report prepared for the Committee by Image Presentations, Inc. and copies of several analyses of the College's "admissions recovery plan" that faculty member Christopher H. Pyle prepared for Mount Holyoke trustees and faculty.
