With campus activities still suspended at St. Joseph’s College in Rensselaer, the school is planning to switch to a two-year model school in order to re-open in the near future.
St. Joseph’s financial problems led to a shut down of the campus in 2017. The school is now planning to partner with Marian University in Indianapolis. The school’s rector, Father Barry Fischer, says the move provides a more feasible path for the school to return.
As the school hammers out any future plans for the school on the academic side, the question still remains on how to solve the school’s financial issues. St. Joe is recovering from millions of dollars of debt which led to hundreds of job cuts and students had to find other schools to attend to finish off their education.
