"We try to make it as affordable as we can," said Peter Laipson, in his eighth month as provost on the bucolic campus of Bard College at Simon's Rock.
He is the former headmaster of the Concord Academy, an independent secondary school. Nearly 90 percent of the 380 students receive some level of financial aid to help meet the $56,000 annual expense, including tuition, fees and residence charges. "Like all colleges, we're thinking hard about whether we will increase next year," said Laipson during an interview in his office on Tuesday. "We recognize that even with the generous financial aid we're able to offer, it's burdensome to many families." With an average classroom size of 15 and an 8-to-1 student-faculty ratio, he added, "that kind of person-intensive education is expensive because you're paying for people." The college remains steadfast in its commitment to the liberal arts, Laipson said. "The conversation is partly about how we make the case for the liberal arts," he said.

GREAT BARRINGTON -- Peter Laipson will be the new provost of Bard College at Simon's Rock and serve as vice president of Bard College.
Laipson is currently dean of faculty at Concord Academy in Concord, Mass., where Simon's Rock founder Elizabeth Blodgett Hall served as headmistress for 14 years. Laipson succeeds Mary Marcy, who after seven years as provost of Simon's Rock, will leave the college in June to become president of the Dominican University of California. In a joint statement issued on Tuesday, Botstein and Vice Chair of the Bard College Board of Trustees Emily H. Fisher welcomed Laipson, saying, "Emily and I have expressed our delight and enthusiasm on the occasion of Dr. Laipson's acceptance of the position of provost and vice president." In a joint statement issued on Tuesday, Botstein and Vice Chair of the Bard College Board of Trustees Emily H. Fisher welcomed Laipson, saying, "Emily and I have expressed our delight and enthusiasm on the occasion of Dr. Laipson's acceptance of the position of provost and vice president." A Worcester native, Laipson holds a bachelor of arts degree from Brown University and a master of arts and doctorate degree in history from the University of Michigan. Also a historian, Laipson's research has focused on gender roles and relations in late 19th- and early 20th-century America. He has previously taught at Bowdoin College, San Francisco University High School and the University of Michigan. He also worked at Tufts and Harvard universities and was Advertisement a visiting fellow at the College Access Foundation of California. "I have been remarkably impressed with all that I have seen of Simon's Rock, especially the talent and commitment of faculty and students," said Laipson.
