Change at Davidson

My alma matter's decision to lift the requirement that trustees be active in the Christian Church has caused a bit of controversy. This decision was made back in February and I guess it didn't make much news at the time because it's the first I'd heard of it. It takes two of the school's biggest donor's jumping ship to make the front page of the Charlotte Observer.

I still haven't figured out how I truly feel about the decision. As long as a candidate for trustee is qualified and of good character it would seem they should qualify. Yet the new regulations -- that 80% of trustees be Christian just strikes me as even more strangely arbitrary than the original guidelines.
