Non-profit university seeks to sell off entire college to international for-profit educational group

In 1991, Westminster Choir College, a small independent music school in Princeton, NJ was in financial trouble. To solve their problems, they chose to merge with Rider College, now Rider University, a larger institution in Lawrenceville, NJ a few miles away. Westminster retained its 23-acre campus in the heart of Princeton and its identity as one of the top schools for training choral musicians. Over the past 26 years the two institutions have grown together for mutual benefit. The new university president is seeking to sell the entire music school and its valuable land to an unnamed international for-profit educational group with no previous experience in higher education.
