WASC Accredited Western U.S. Private University For Sale
#1
Gasp!  Let the bidding war begin!   Someone (or some group) with big pockets will want this RA school! I wonder which one it is... I am guessing $40 million or much more!  I remember a few months ago, a Canadian private school was for sale, it was quoted $40 million and I had a hard time holding my laughter after reading that message.  I would not even advise anyone to pay 1/10th for that Canadian school, scary what people are asking for, I believe it would have been much cheaper creating a competitor school and building the business.

It's interesting that they're using a broker like Halladay. Not that there's anything wrong with Halladay, but I wonder whether that suggests they tried reaching out to "usual suspects" VCs and big players in this industry (Laureate, Adtalem, etc.) and were rebuffed, forcing them to cast more broad a net.

I agree. There's a college nearby that's struggling. REALLY struggling. They were hurting before COVID. Then COVID happened and they're hemorrhaging $$$$. They've already signed a letter of intent with another local college to transfer many of the kids there. They don't have all of the programs at college b, but it gives them options and they wouldn't have to apply. They would transfer at their class level as well. If they survive the next year, it will be because they found alumni who handed over millions and I mean millions. They had a fundraiser to raise 7.5 million in June. Yup in 30 days during a pandemic they were fundraising for $7,500,000 and that was just to open the campus for the fall semester. If they can't be on campus for the fall semester, they're done. Room & board is what keeping them afloat. Same with many other colleges and universities from what I'm told by a VP of Campus Life at a college. He would not be surprised to see a lot of closures within the next 2-3 years.

I agree, and my probably unpopular opinion is that while I feel compassion for those who are employed by institutions that are not well suited for the 21st century economy (including 21st century demographics), that policymakers should forgo extreme measures to try to resuscitate expiring institutions.

Oh I do not believe taxpayers should bailout any private institution of higher education. They made their bed and now they have to lie in it. I know it's harsh, but so many colleges and universities offer numerous degrees in fields that don't exist anymore or are difficult to find a job with. They're just looking to cash in on students. Many of these institutions are stuck in the 1950's.
