Mayor Miro Weinberger Statement on Closing of Burlington College

 

“Burlington College’s closing is a loss for our community. Although it has been clear for years that the college faced major financial challenges, many individuals and organizations, including the City, hoped today’s announcement would never come and worked to achieve a better outcome. Our thoughts are with those most impacted by today’s news – current students who have not yet completed their degrees and the committed college faculty and staff who will soon lose their jobs – and the City appreciates the proactive steps being taken to assist these groups.”
