If the Time Comes: Closing a College Wisely

TPF Webcast

For most colleges and universities, closure is a last resort. But as enrollment and financial pressures intensify, more institutions may come to recognize that closing is inevitable. However, even if this time comes, leaders still face important and difficult choices about when and how to do it; choices that can make a real difference to students, staff, and other stakeholders. So it is incumbent on them to understand and consider what is involved, though fortunately, few have been through the process.

In this webcast, arranged by the Transformational Partnerships Fund, two presidents, a board chair, and a lawyer — all with direct experience in college closures — will share their insights in a brief presentation and a moderated panel discussion on how to plan thoughtfully for closure in ways that prioritize the needs of students.

Registration information not be shared with the Transformational Partnerships Fund (or any other party) and during the webcast, participants will have the opportunity to ask questions on an anonymous basis. The registration link is here.
