In the coming months, the new governing board of Sweet Briar College can expect a crash course in postrevolutionary affairs.
At 5 p.m. on Thursday, a peaceful transfer of power is expected at
the financially struggling women’s college north of Lynchburg, Va. A
phalanx of activists, who managed to help keep the college open with a
shrewd mix of litigation and social-media organizing, will be installed
as members of Sweet Briar’s newly constituted Board of Directors.
