Decreasing the surplus population
Of small, private, liberal arts colleges. Another one bites the dust. From the Chronicle of Higher Education.
St. Catharine College of Kentucky to Close, Citing Enrollment and Financial Woes
Administrators at the college said they had reached out to other institutions to establish teach-out plans for current students, and summer camps and classes will continue as scheduled, according to the statement. The college was expected to enroll a class of around 475 students in the fall semester. It employed 118 full-time faculty and staff members, as well as numerous part-time staff members and adjunct instructors.
St. Catharine joins Dowling College, in New York, and Burlington College, in Vermont, on a growing list of small liberal-arts colleges that have closed their doors recently for financial reasons.
