Three Vermont colleges have recently announced they are closing their doors this year. Join us on Wednesday, May 22 for a live broadcast of Vermont Edition from the Rutland Free Library to take a look at the circumstances that led to the closure of these schools.
In this noontime broadcast, we'll look at the struggles of small colleges in Vermont and the effects these closures will have on the schools' students and staff and the communities surrounding the institutions. You'll have a chance to submit your questions for our guests.
The broadcast will take place in the Nella Grimm Fox room. This all-ages event is free and open to the public, but please reserve your seat in advance.
