Dale says Winthrop has unique and special programs she believes will resonate with the philanthropic community

She says the university can expand its geographical reach by exploring online learning opportunities.

During her tenure at Drexel, Dale says she led a team that found a consultant to do a feasibility study of whether the University of Massachusetts should add a Division One football program.  She says she’s aware of the costs associated with football.

Dales says for Winthrop to entertain the idea of a future football team — the school needs to have an endowment to correctly and adequately fund the program.

The final two candidates for the president’s job will visit campus next week.
