A Pathway for Students When a College Closes

When The College of New Rochelle (CNR) faced closure due to financial hardship, an agreement with nearby Mercy College created a seamless pathway for CNR students to continue their education uninterrupted. Mercy accommodated almost every degree program, retained half of CNR’s faculty and leased 3 of their 5 campuses. Presidents of the two colleges will discuss what made the agreement possible, successful, and how other institutions can benefit from similarly partnering and sharing resources.
