N.J. UNIVER­SITY TRIES TO SELL MUSIC SITE

The Denver Post - - BUSINESS -

A New Jersey univer­sity wants to sell its music col­lege to an­other in­sti­tu­tion.

Rider Univer­sity pres­i­dent Gre­gory Dell’Omo an­nounced Tuesday that an out­side firm has been hired to seek a buyer for the West­min­ster Choir Col­lege and its 23-acre cam­pus in Prince­ton. He said an­other op­tion is to sell the school to a buyer who will move the school to its own cam­pus.

The move comes as Rider con­tin­ues ef­forts to boost en­roll­ment and faces a po­ten­tial $13 mil­lion short­fall by 2019.

Rider of­fi­cials had con­sid­ered mov­ing the 460-stu­dent music school to the univer­sity’s main cam­pus in Lawrenceville, but sup­port­ers say it doesn’t have the nec­es­sary fa­cil­i­ties.
