A Tempo Explores Rider's Decision for Westminster

Mar 31, 2017

Rider University's Board of Trustees voted this week to search for another school or institution to buy Westminster Choir College, together, if possible, with the 23-acre Princeton parcel that Westminster has called home since 1932. The decision was met with guarded optimism from Westminster students, alumni and other supporters, who had feared the college would be merged onto Rider's main campus in Lawrenceville, NJ. This week, A Tempo presents some of the voices from that discussion, and explores some of the challenges that still like ahead. Host Rachel Katz will also speak with Princeton Mayor Liz Lempert and Brian Weinblatt, senior director of development at University of Miami School of Communication, who writes about higher education mergers and acquisitions.
