New England College to Merge with N.H. Institute of Art

New England College to Merge with N.H. Institute of Art

May 30, 2018

New England College (NH) and the New Hampshire Institute of Art are merging, the two schools announced Tuesday.  The move comes as small schools across the Northeast struggle with declining revenues and enrollment because of declining numbers of graduating seniors in the region. But the Henniker-based NEC, a private, not-for-profit liberal arts school with about 2,800 undergraduate and graduate students, has been growing its enrollment and expanding programming.

Market Changes, Missteps and Marylhurst's Closure

Market Changes, Missteps and Marylhurst's Closure

May 30, 2018

Marylhurst, an independent institution near Portland, Ore., announced this month that it would close after 125 years, with its leaders saying they preferred it to die with dignity than limp on. The Board of Trustees plans to return the campus to the religious order that founded the college.  As is common when colleges close, faculty members, students and some alumni have objected to the decision and are urging the university's leaders to reconsider. They have questioned, among other things, how a university that was ahead of its time in its focus on adult students and its embrace of innovative approaches to learning lost its way.

Unlike Mount Ida, Quincy College Took the High Road - Editorial

Unlike Mount Ida, Quincy College Took the High Road - Editorial

May 30, 2018

The Editorial Board writes:  The traumatic shutdown of Mount Ida College (MA) didn’t have to cause as much turmoil as it did for students. A few towns away, another college faced its own crisis — and handled it much better.
