Union Institute closes Montpelier offices

MONTPELIER (AP) - Union Institute and University is closing its Montpelier operations and consolidating its Vermont footprint in Brattleboro.

The move, to be completed by June, comes as the four-year liberal arts school reduces its weekend residency programs and relies more on online classes.

The Cincinnati-based school has two campuses in California, one in Florida and will go from two to one in Vermont.

The school sold its Montpelier property - on the campus of the former Vermont College - to the Vermont College of Fine Arts several years ago and had been renting space there since then.

Union spokeswoman Carolyn Krause says students currently enrolled in the Montpelier-based programs will be asked to transfer to Brattleboro or complete their course work online.
