The Business of Giving, a radio program focusing on the world’s social problems and their possible philanthropic solutions, will air a pre-recorded interview with host Denver Frederick, President David Wippman and trustee Aron Ain '79 this Sunday, Jan. 8, at 6 p.m.

The show begins with the Wippman and Ain interview and then continues with other non-profit leaders including David Williams, the president & CEO of Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Frederick and his guests discussed Hamilton’s need-blind policy, the case for a liberal arts education, the new curricular requirement, social media on campus and the trustees' role in assisting a new president, among other topics.
