from Truman State University in Kirks- ville, Mo., a school of 6,200 students where he had served as president for six years.


UMW is continuing its push


toward a “digital liberal arts” education. “It is an integration of technology into traditional liberal learning,” says Jeffrey McClurken, who in May was appointed by Paino as a special adviser.

The school has about 4,100 undergraduates, with a student-faculty ratio of 14 to 1. In addition to the Fredericksburg
