When Colleges Close...

Chris Gehrz has added a couple of recent posts on his The Pietist Schoolman blog that explore data on institutional closures.  

The first, When Colleges Close: A Historical Sketch, published April 22, 2013 includes his observations backed up by several interesting charts  and tables.   When Colleges Close: Recent History , published April 29, 2013, follows up with an emphasis on some of the more well-established institutions [those with 100+ years of history] that have closed in recent years.

Gehrz highlights four institutions [Bradford College in Massachusetts, Lambuth University in Tennessee, Dana College in Nebraska, and Southeastern University in Washington, DC ] with more detailed comments.
