Historic Santa Fe Foundation (HSFF) is pleased to host a talk by St. John's College President Mark Roosevelt on current state of the college and its interaction with the Santa Fe community. In the past year, St. John's College has received extensive, favorable press coverage on its signal curriculum, as well as reductions to its tuition schedule, and even more significant, reductions for local New Mexico students. Roosevelt will discuss this and other changes to the school since his leadership in 2016. The lecture will be held at HSFF’s El Zaguán, 545 Canyon Road, on Thursday, September 19, 2019 at 3pm.
In additon to the talk, we are pleased to offer a tour of St. John's campus on Tuesday, September 24 at 2pm. More details about the tour will be available soon including the meeting point on the campus of the college. The tour is free, but reservations are required.
