New non-profits carry SJ mission, campus forward

SITKA, ALASKA Since Sheldon Jackson college suspended academic operations early last summer, a handful of new non-profit organizations have been formed to create, maintain, or even expand a number of campus programs — everything from keeping the childcare facility going, to creating an ocean science center at the college’s working hatchery and wet lab.
The consortium of new campus organizations met for the first time Tuesday evening (1-29-08) in Sitka to report on their work, and to discuss whether they had enough common purpose to warrant a formal relationship with the college’s trustees.
