The College of St. Rose is about three times the size of Guilford in terms of enrollment, with a number of graduate programs. Its endowment is far smaller at $37 million. The press release claims over a $9 million operating deficit on a budget that looks like about $117 million, while this year Guilford is working to close a much smaller deficit on a smaller budget. Their faculty salaries are higher than Guilford’s but not by much – about $3000-$6000 or 8-15% depending on faculty rank.
