I attended the MN House Higher Education Committee Hearing on Wednesday afternoon. Officials from the Office of Higher Education provided background on the closing of Argosy University. Testimony was heard from students and teachers from Argosy. Most of the students were close to graduation and were making plans to do their clinical work, so the emotion and frustration was very evident. Some people from other institutions provided information and offered assistance.
It seems there are a several irregularities involved with the closing of the school, so there should be actions taken to deal with those. In the meantime, the legislature and the state are taking what steps they can to bring some relief to those that have been impacted by the closing. There is action that should be taken by the Federal Government and we don’t have that information available yet.
