Amid Funding Crunch, CT Colleges Look to Diversify Revenue Streams

Amid Funding Crunch, CT Colleges Look to Diversify Revenue Streams

April 17, 2018

Trinity College (CT) generated headlines earlier this year when it announced that for the first time in the school's history, its tuition — inclusive of room, board and annual fees — would exceed $70,000 beginning in 2018-2019.  Yet, the 195-year-old private liberal arts college in Hartford's Frog Hollow neighborhood is not alone at that price point. In fact, several private schools across New England, including Middletown's Wesleyan University, Amherst College in Massachusetts and Dartmouth in New Hampshire, are all on the threshold of the $70,000 mark.

Lawrence University to Pay Tuition for Students Who Can't

April 17, 2018

Lawrence University in Appleton (WI) is joining the ranks of Ivy League schools across the nation in at least one respect: by paying tuition for students who can't.  Lawrence University is closing in on a lofty goal: it’s nearly reached the level of endowment needed to cover tuition and fees for those who can’t afford the private, liberal arts school where tuition for the 2018-19 academic year will cost $57,816.

Never Solved, a College Dorm Fire Has Become One Man’s Obsession

Never Solved, a College Dorm Fire Has Become One Man’s Obsession

April 17, 2018

Students awoke to what they thought was the murmur of children playing. They awoke to what they assumed was a pesky classmate banging on the door to borrow a textbook. They awoke from a lifelike dream that they were at a barbecue, could even smell the smoke. There was smoke. It was just after 4 in the morning. The dorm was on fire.  It had ignited in the basement lounge of the Cornell Heights Residential Club, a repurposed motel on the northern fringe of the expansive Cornell University campus in Ithaca, N.Y.

Marquette Firing of Conservative Professor Gains National Spotlight as It Hits High Court

Marquette Firing of Conservative Professor Gains National Spotlight...

April 16, 2018

If he hadn't criticized a graduate student instructor by name on his politically conservative blog and opened her up to threats, John McAdams wouldn't be arguing for his job back before the Wisconsin Supreme Court on Thursday. That's the position of Marquette University (WI) as it heads to court with the embattled political science professor, who is in his seventh unpaid semester outside the classroom.  Marquette University President Michael Lovell said the university did the right thing, regardless of the outcome.
