Faculty Balk at Westminster Layoff Notices

November 02, 2017

The faculty union at Rider University is protesting after Westminster Choir College’s teaching staff received layoff notices warning that the college may close if it cannot be sold. Rider, with a main campus in Lawrenceville, N.J., faces financial difficulties and has been seeking to sell Westminster to a buyer that would keep the choir college on its campus in Princeton, N.J. The university has entered negotiations with a buyer that faculty members have described as a for-profit company operating K-12 schools in Asia.
