Private four year colleges are under unprecedented pressure. Hampshire College, the College of New Rochelle, Sweet Briar, Mount Ida and many others have closed, merged into other institutions, or announced their intention to "explore strategic options" in order to remain viable. Please join us to explore nature of the challenges, the possible responses and how, if at all, funders interested in college access and success should respond.

  • The factors that threaten institutions and the types of institutions most at risk
  • The impact on students - in particular vulnerable students - of institutional instability
  • The possible responses and how philanthropy can play a role


Designed for

All interested funders.
