December 14, 2022

A Catholic liberal arts women's college has chosen Mesa for its first expansion outside Wisconsin. Founded in 1887 by the School Sisters of St. Francis, Alverno College is offering a Direct Entry Master of Science in Nursing program, where anyone with at least a bachelor's degree can begin working on a career change into nursing. Alverno, based in Milwaukee, expanded its pre-licensure nursing program to Arizona because of its severe nursing shortage, said Linda Shanta, associate director and director of Alverno's Direct Entry Master of Science in Nursing (DEMSN) program.

How a Monthslong Scramble to Save Cazenovia College Failed: ‘It Does Seem So Unimaginable’

How a Monthslong Scramble to Save Cazenovia College Failed: ‘It Doe...

December 13, 2022

Officials at Cazenovia College (NY) this summer came to a devastating realization: They could not refinance a $25 million debt when it came due in full Sept. 1. Thus began a desperate scramble to save the private liberal arts college that has been an integral part of this idyllic Upstate New York village for nearly 200 years. The college tried everything it could: Asking lenders for more time to pay up. Fundraising appeals to alumni. A bailout from the state. Partnerships with other colleges. Nothing worked. On Wednesday morning, the college’s board of trustees met at the school and voted to close the institution at the end of the spring 2023 semester. The school will not reopen next fall.

Strike Ends at the New School and Parsons School of Design

Strike Ends at the New School and Parsons School of Design

December 12, 2022

Part-time faculty members at the New School have agreed to end a grueling three-week strike over pay and benefits after reaching an agreement late Saturday with the university. The sizable walkout had left the school at a near standstill. Classes were canceled because nearly 90 percent of the faculty is made up of untenured adjunct professors and lecturers. The school had also been facing a lawsuit from irate parents, who had threatened to withhold payment or force their children to transfer to other institutions.
