Burlington College Watches Finances as it Grows into its New Campus

Posted by Coralee Holm, Director of Community & Alumni Relations

Jul 7, 2014 12:23:00 PM

In 2011, Burlington College moved from the 16,000 square foot Colodny building up North Avenue to its current location. Within the 90,000 square feet of the former Burlington Catholic Diocese headquarters, the College is bustling with students and community events, and working to meet the vision set forth during the purchase of the new campus and subsequent change in leadership. As is typical of any evolving business, the College’s growth is not without bumps in the road.

Following its recent review of Burlington College, the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), which accredits educational institutions in New England, placed the College on probation status for up to two years for failure to meet one of eleven standards. The standard of concern is based on financial resources, and does not relate to the College’s academic strengths. Burlington College remains accredited during the period of probation.

I Cannot Go There....Music in Gaza

Posted by Coralee Holm, Director of Community & Alumni Relations

Dec 30, 2013 2:32:00 PM

In many ways the concert was similar to others that Burlington College Director of Music and violinist Michael Dabroski has performed: a church full of eager faces, engaged by Michael’s animated play, enthralled with the symmetrical beauty of Bach’s chamber music. Only this December concert was in the Gaza Strip, a highly populated war-sieged strip of land, currently under flood conditions with unemployment exceeding 70 percent, attended by a people of Muslim and Christian faiths starved for art and music and freedom.

It was no easy task getting into (and out of) Gaza and included a chauffeured armored escort with the French consulate and a six-hour wait through a Hamas checkpoint. Currently the United States does not recognize the government of Gaza, and warns its citizens about entering the area.
