Thoughts on Monmouth College (IL), not to be confused with the Monmouth in NJ? Thanks.

I looked it up on MapQuest for the same reason you started this thread.  Then I struck them from the list.

It's one of the many, many, many liberal arts colleges that dot the Midwest.  It is part of the ACM cohort, putting it in the good company of Knox, Carleton, Beloit. This offers good professional development through the consortium -- chances to work through the Newberry, study abroad orograms un India, Asia, maybe London.  It is no Carleton, Beloit and Knox, though.  It has a pretty low endowment, constant salary issues.  You could do worse.

Yeah, it's definitely a rural campus. Not too far from Iowa City though...

Positively impactful on stakeholder synergies

Monmouth nearly died in the 90s (I was an another ACM college at the time), but through some very good leadership and fortuitous circumstances they are doing pretty well now.  They've had growing enrollment and OK endowment growth for the last 10 years or so.

They are definitely the weak player in the ACM, along with Ripon, however.

They have a consistently excellent Division III football team.  I've always wondered if it's a big deal on campus like it would be at a division I school.

Yes, it's in rural Illinois, as some people mentioned.

I just met with a bunch of faculty from there and I was impressed.
