The Citadel response to Gov. Sanford's
"The governor's proposal, which provides for selected state institutions to opt for private institution status, is very significant. The details of this alternative will become clearer as discussions regarding this proposal take place at the state level. We await additional clarification of the proposal in order to evaluate its feasibility for The Citadel. As always, we are concerned about the impact such a change would have on The Citadel family -- students, faculty, staff and alumni. Also, we must evaluate how such a change would impact our mission."
