After years of hard work, Concordia University Wisconsin (CUW) recently announced that the merger with Concordia University Ann Arbor (CUAA) is now complete.
According to William Cario, vice president of Academics at CUW, the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association approved CUW’s acquisition of CUAA in a July 9 letter to the Rev. Dr. Patrick T. Ferry, president of CUW and now CUAA.
“We are excited to pursue Concordia’s mission in this new way with a new campus and the additional combined resources of two excellent faculties,” says Cario.
According to President Ferry, CUAA could not obtain needed cash flow and was not in a position to add new progressive programs. CUW did not want to lose a Concordia presence in Michigan, where it has been in existence for 50 years.
