Board of trustees vote in favor of keeping college open

March 13, 2019

RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) — The board of trustees at the College of St. Joseph in Vermont has voted unanimously in favor of the college president’s plan to keep the school open.

The Rutland Herald reports board of trustees Chairman Jay Kenlan says the college could see a reduction in staffing, and they may send undergraduates to other colleges.

He says the board is hopeful that the plan will encourage the New England Commission of High Education to reverse its decision to withdraw the college’s accreditation.

Kenlan says he couldn’t discuss all the details of the plan.

CSJ President Jennifer Scott previously said the school has entered talks with a partner institution that could help keep the college open.

Neither Scott nor Kenlan has identified the partner.
