Somerset may be a few steps closer to having a full-fledged, four-year university in its own backyard, and while there is still a ways to go, Tuesday’s announcement from the city’s mayor and Campbellsville University (CU) officials means that dream is a little closer to reality. The University of Somerset Foundation and Somerset’s CU campus have merged to become the Somerset Institute of Campbellsville University.

December 16, 2022

The University of Redlands, a nonprofit institution in Southern California, plans to acquire Presidio Graduate School, a nonprofit operating in the San Francisco area, after the graduate school determined its financial outlook required it to find a partner or close. The agreement will give Presidio, which has operated hybrid programming including weekend residencies around the Bay Area, a permanent home at a Marin County campus about 15 miles northwest of San Francisco. University of Redlands took on that campus in 2019, when it acquired San Francisco Theological Seminary.

Harvard Names a New President, an Insider and Historic First

Harvard Names a New President, an Insider and Historic First

December 15, 2022

Harvard University (MA) has announced that its new president will be Claudine Gay, the dean of Harvard’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences. She will be the first African American, and second woman, to ascend to the presidency, succeeding Lawrence S. Bacow. Dr. Gay will take office in July 2023, just as the university faces a pivotal Supreme Court decision that may force it to revise its longstanding admissions processes, which have been criticized for considering factors that favor white and wealthy candidates while also using affirmative action to bolster enrollment by Black and Hispanic students.

Why One Ivy League University Joined the Move to Ditch Enrollment Deposits

Why One Ivy League University Joined the Move to Ditch Enrollment D...

December 14, 2022

Over the summer, Whitney Soule, a University of Pennsylvania vice provost and dean of admissions, began discussing with colleagues how the Ivy League institution manages students’ enrollment deposits.
A mainstay of the college-selection ritual, enrollment deposits require admitted students to put down a few hundred dollars or less to signify their intent to enroll and lock in their seats for the coming term. This money then applies to their tuition bill. Mandated deposits help colleges map out their incoming classes — and thus their budgets — as students theoretically are less likely to renege on attending if they already contributed some cash. Students do back out, though, sometimes because they have pledged multiple deposits.
