Why SMB is no longer with the Hampshire College Summer Studies in Mathematics

Just came across this, from my old REU buddy Sarah-Marie Belcastro.  I’m old enough to remember when Hampshire, Ross’s program at OSU, and (to some extent) Math Olympiad training were the only places a high school kid could get formal training in really advanced math.  Hampshire has done a lot of good for a lot of kids over the years, especially countercultural kids who love math but not regimentation, contests, and grades.  (I myself was a super-compliant establishment type who loved contests and grades, so I did MOP.)   It’s a shame to hear they’re having management problems.
