Merger delay forces layoffs at Massachusetts college

97 employees at Atlantic Union College will lose their jobs

From The Worcester Telegram & Gazette: All of the faculty at Atlantic Union College in South Lancaster, Mass., are being laid off at the end of the month because of a delay in the merger between the college and Maryland-based Washington Adventist University. College President Norman L. Wendth says the state Department of Higher Education has not approved Atlantic Union Campus operating as a satellite of Washington Adventist University, a sister Seventh-day Adventist school. The merger is on hold for at least one semester, and probably for the entire school year. Nearly all of the college's 450 students have found schools for the fall semester.

From The Adventist News Network: 97 full-time employees at Atlantic Union College will be laid off on July 31.
