ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Only a week after the Board of Trustees of Ave Maria College reaffirmed its commitment to continue the Michigan college through 2007, and to explore options to keep the school functioning after that, Thomas Monaghan announced that he wants the school shut down in 2007. . . . The problem, which has created the crisis, was that one college had now become two institutions. The so-called transition was in reality the start-up of a new university in Florida at the expense of an already-existing college in Michigan with ongoing interests.
Sad news for all involved, particularly the students and their parents. Pray for all involved. James Akin has a roundup of related news on his blog.
