College of St. Joseph Preparing For Accreditation Loss
On March 21st, Dr. Jennifer Scott – President of College of St. Joseph in Rutland, Vermont – announced that the school of around 200 students had been unable to find an institutional partner to save it from losing its accreditation. The attempt came after a ruling from the private Catholic college’s accreditors – the New England Commission of Higher Education – that it would be placed on probation if it couldn’t shore up its finances. Now, the college will enter a period of limbo as it approaches the loss of its accreditation in August. Scott spoke with WAMC about the school’s future.
