Untitled[edit]

11.15.05 Removed the following sentences:

Most Amherst College students are of the opinion that he's alright, but think he should reduce the volume of his voice, both when speaking publicly and in everyday conversation.

Most Amherst College students also don't think he quite measures up to the former president of Amherst College, Tom Gerety. bhorton


Removed comments regarding his "hatred" for athletes because of being picked on. Lordjeff06 05:27, 6 November 2006 (UTC)

Expansions?[edit]

What needs to be added to this article to make it not a stub? (i.e. stuff I may add to procrastinate someday, if nobody else does it first.)

  • A sentence or two on Marx's previous scholarly work, like his books? e.g. "In these books, Marx argued that... " blah blah. One would need to find them, or at least some reviews of them.
  • Some discussion of his major initiative(s) at Amherst, e.g. "At Amherst, Marx has made socioeconomic class divides his main priority (cite commencement/convocation speeches as necessary, they're all online). His major initiative in this area (cite Businessweek article and the CAP report, if that's publicly available) has been a sort of affirmative action in admission, based on class rather than race. Marx's position is that while Amherst may not be able to make a significant difference on its own, it has a responsibility to lead by example." etc. etc.
  • Anything else?

Apparently he was involved in founding Khanya College in South Africa. I don't know any more than the Amherst bio says: "In the 1980s, he helped found Khanya College, a South African secondary school that helped prepare more than 1,000 black students for university."[1] -David Schaich Talk/Cont 01:08, 18 November 2006 (UTC)
Oooh, good lead, Dave. I found a source: [2] (a big PDF served from .za, so a very slow link). It's a history of Khanya College, and mentions Marx as being instrumental in the planning of the College.--Pjmorse 03:27, 18 November 2006 (UTC)

Financial aid[edit]

This would be a good source for expanding the financial aid section: Top Colleges, Largely for the Elite By DAVID LEONHARDT Published: May 24, 2011 New York Times Jodi.a.schneider (talk) 12:11, 17 June 2011 (UTC)

Needs updating[edit]

This article should be updated to provide more information about Marx's work at the NYPL. Some of the Amherst material is still in the present tense, as if he were still employed there. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 130.132.179.165 (talk) 16:32, 16 December 2013 (UTC)
