  • University of Kentucky accidentally supports 500,000 students

    The last spring, experts were concerned that small private universities would be tightened especially by related registration declines With pandemic, unforeseen expenses and a volatile stock market. For some, such as Becker College, Concordia College in New York, Pine Manor College and Mills College, the pandemic pushed the leaders to decide to merge or close.

    But close worries can be too exaggerated, Hundrieser said.

    "We talk about all school closures, but proportionally there have not been many," she said. "People predicted hundreds, but we have not seen hundreds. There have been some".

    At this time, Hundrieser does not see a clear pattern to show what types of private universities were better in the last year than others. He pointed out some prudent financial decisions that probably helped certain institutions, including the disciplined budget that did not result in recurring deficits, leaving the money for cash reserves and maintenance of low debt levels.

    It is possible that the institutions that attend rich, white students, whose family finance have, on average, much better during the pandemic than that of students of color or low-income students, had a Leg until last year. Experts also suspect that institutions with strong branding power and greater richness may have continued to grow despite the pandemic.

    But as the bodies of the pandemic, it is also possible that the fears of widespread closures can decrease and some more success. The stories will emerge.

    So, how could it be bound, and other other Asian institutions, doing so well during the year of exceptional agitation?
