Marygrove College to close in December
Two years after it stopped offering undergraduate classes and embarked on an unprecedented effort to offer only master’s degrees, Marygrove College will close at the end of the fall semester in December, the school announced Wednesday.
“We’ve been working very hard to avoid this day,” Elizabeth Burns, president of Marygrove College, said in an interview on campus. “It is a very sad day for our students, for our alums, for our faculty, for the sisters. The (Immaculate Heart of Mary) sisters brought Marygrove to Detroit in 1927. Their legacy of education will continue.”
