Dade Medical College and University of Southernmost Florida Close

The Miami Herald reports that six Dade Medical College campuses and two campuses of the University of Southernmost Florida closed abruptly on October 30, 2015.   Reporters Michael Vasquez and Christina Veiga note that the for-profit was founded in 1999 and had been under intense scrutiny for poor academic quality.  The article includes a link to the recent series of investigative reports by the Herald, the Higher-Ed Hustle, that exposed the many problems in the for-profit sector arising from political contributions and lax regulation.
