Even Before Free Tuition, WNY Private Colleges Struggle to Fill Seats

November 14, 2017

But the number of students enrolled at four-year colleges and universities in Western New York went down by more than 3,000 people from five years ago, a Buffalo News analysis has found. Just four of the 16 institutions experienced growth between fall of 2013 and fall of 2017. And three institutions – Canisius College, SUNY Buffalo State and Houghton College – now have the fewest students on their campuses in more than 30 years.

The panel working on negotiations over the Trump administration’s rewrite of Obama-era student loan protections didn’t get much done on its first day of work on Monday. Before the panel even began addressing the substance of the rules, members of the rulemaking committee sparred for hours over whether to adopt procedures that permit members of public to livestream or videotape the negotiating sessions.

Days of Reckoning

November 13, 2017

Saint Joseph's College has been selling assets since it closed in the spring. Its website now includes art of campus. Those forecasting a wave of college closures find themselves with a glut of recent anecdotes to support their story.  It has not been a good fall for small, private liberal arts colleges. Last week, St. Gregory’s University in Oklahoma said it is closing at the end of the semester. The news came on the heels of a similar announcement by the Memphis College of Art in late October, an announcement that itself arrived just weeks after Grace University in Omaha, Neb., unveiled plans to shut down.

International-Student Enrollment Is Slowing — and It Isn’t All Donald Trump’s Fault

International-Student Enrollment Is Slowing — and It Isn’t All Dona...

November 13, 2017

The number of international students in the United States hit a new high in the fall of 2016, topping 1.08 million, according to a report just released by the Institute of International Education and the U.S. Department of State.  
But the shiny record obscures a grimmer truth. Even before the ascension of Donald J. Trump to a presidency notable for its hostility to global engagement and to foreigners themselves, international student recruitment had already begun to ebb, auguring the end of a decade of muscular growth.

Raskin Wants Tougher Law on Campus Religious Discrimination

Raskin Wants Tougher Law on Campus Religious Discrimination

November 13, 2017

Maryland Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Kensington, proposed Tuesday that religious discrimination on college campuses should be prohibited under the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964.  That law already bars religious discrimination in hiring, but the congressman said the law’s protections need to be broadened.
