During the 1899-1900 academic year, the college employed only one professor in each
of the following areas: English and French, pure and applied mathematics, Latin,
moral philosophy and the English Bible, biology and physics, Greek and German, history
and economics, and chemistry and geology. Assisting the president in running the
college were a vice president, a director of physical culture (physical education),
a secretary/treasurer, the college physician, and the chaplain.

NOW: Ninety full-time faculty are on
board this year, and 48 other faculty engage in part-time teaching. Ninety percent
of the full-time faculty have earned doctoral or the highest earned degrees in their
fields. Today's president has the assistance of several senior administrators -
the vice president for academic affairs, the dean of students, the dean of admissions
and financial aid, the treasurer, and the vice president for development.
