In a Worcester Business Journal “Shop Talk” feature, Rev. Philip L. Boroughs, S.J., president of the College of the Holy Cross, discussed his first 14 months on the job and offered his views on the value of the liberal arts, trends in higher education, athletics, and the College’s general financial aid policies.

“We are one of the fewer than 50 ‘need-blind’ … colleges and universities in the United States,” Fr. Boroughs said. “When we accept students to Holy Cross, we do not look at their financial need statements. And after we’ve accepted them and students have made the choice to come to Holy Cross, we work with them … to meet 100 percent of that need. This current year, we have committed $41.2 million in financial aid to students. Any student in Worcester who is able to get in and meet our academic standards whose family makes less than $50,000 a year comes to Holy Cross tuition free.”
