  • Concordia College

    CACC member Concordia College will close at the end of the current semester. Students will complete their degrees in the teach-out process through Iona College. Iona College is also buying the Concordia College campus.

    Concordia College New York to Close

    Also see: Joint Statement from Concordia College New York and Iona College

    The CACC isn't hurting for members but do they stay at 13 or seek a replacement.

    Concordia in Portland also closed ... one week after raising $250K at a fund raiser. They returned the money. The Lutheran Church must have no clue on how to run a university.

        They'll probably end up being at 12 sooner rather than later. University of the Sciences in Philadelphia is about to be taken over by St. Joseph's University, so that may result in the elimination of USciences' athletics (thread in the Atlantic Region forum):

          CCNY is apart of the Concordia system that's been decimated in recent years - they've lost three schools since 2018, and two campuses merged in 2013. They are now down to five schools nationwide (counting the merger as one school).

          It will be curious to see how the remaining schools fair in the upcoming years. I can't speak for every Concordia, but St. Paul is not a very well known school in Minnesota - unfortunately. Oddly enough, non-CUS Concordia-Moorhead is a fairly well-known school. Weird.

            They have 7 schools nationwide (Ann Arbor, Chicago, Irvine, Nebraska, St. Paul, Texas and Wisconsin). Concordia New York was the latest to close.

            Copied from the Concordia New York website - After much deliberation, the Board of Regents of Concordia College New York decided that Concordia College will close; classes will cease beginning with the Fall 2021 semester. This extremely difficult decision was the result of a deliberative, thoughtful and strategic process, informed by immutable business realities. Set within the context of a changing and broadly challenged higher education sector, the College’s financial shortfalls were further accelerated by the global pandemic. Concordia College New York will not offer any more classes after August 31, 2021. Concordia will make its final degree conferrals on December 31st, 2021.

              I think Ann Arbor and Wisconsin are the same school, technically speaking - just two different campuses.

                There are a few Golden Bears, but only one school is the Cobbers!

                  Then that would make it six.

                    And there's only one Banana Slugs. Thank goodness.
