VT Digger is reporting that Marlboro College will be giving its campus and endowment to Emerson College of Boston.
“Under a tentative agreement, Marlboro leaders say the school’s roughly $30 million endowment and $10 million in land and buildings will endow Emerson’s Liberal Arts and Interdisciplinary Studies program, which will be renamed the Marlboro Institute for Liberal Arts and Interdisciplinary Studies at Emerson College. ”
They expect the merger to be completed by July 2020.
Staff aren’t part of the deal.
Declining enrollments are part of the reason.
