RALEIGH -- Saint Augustine’s University is negotiating to acquire St. Paul’s College in Virginia, a financially troubled college that is fighting to hold on to its accreditation.

The executive committees of both historically black institutions of higher learning met Tuesday to discuss the acquisition of Saint Paul’s, located in Lawrenceville, Va. St. Aug’s, located near downtown Raleigh, has agreed to manage St. Paul’s beginning Jan. 1 with the eventual goal of acquiring the school and creating a campus at the Virginia location.

The deal would come as Saint Paul’s has lost enrollment after losing its accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, which had raised questions about the school’s financial stability. The decision meant students wouldn’t be eligible for federal and state aid so the college won an injunction in federal court to keep its accreditation.

Full story



A North Carolina university is exploring the acquisition of troubled Saint Paul’s College in Lawrenceville.

Effective Jan. 1, Saint Paul’s will operate under joint management with Saint Augustine’s University, a private liberal-arts school in Raleigh with about 1,500 students.

The announcement followed a meeting Tuesday of the executive committees of the two schools’ boards of trustees to discuss a plan to create a campus of Saint Augustine’s at Saint Paul’s.

Like Saint Paul’s, a financially struggling college suing over loss of accreditation, Saint Augustine’s was founded after the Civil War to educate former slaves.

But Saint Augustine’s, which transitioned from a college to university Aug. 1, is financially viable and focused on growth, said Shelley Willingham-Hinton, the university’s associate vice president for marketing and communications.

The university is seeking “to do what we can to assist a sister institution,” she said.

“We’re just looking to help preserve that legacy of Saint Paul’s. We don’t want to see it completely fold,” she said. “At the same time, this is a business decision that will support the strategic efforts of Saint Augustine’s University.”

This is what should have happened to Morris Brown.  They should have been absorbed into one of the other AUC schools.

But this isn't unusual in higher education circles.

Webber International University absorbed St. Andrews University in 2011 in a similar takeover.

Bishop College alumni have a partnership with Georgetown College of Kentucky adopting Georgetown as their official alma mater.  Descendants of Bishop alumni can receive scholarships to that school.

St. Aug rents space from Barber-Scotia for their Gateway Adult Learning program.

I'm glad to see an option being presented to St. Paul's that can restore their credibility.   clap
