As a follow-up to our story last week that Cincinnati Christian University will be closing after the fall semester, CCU board of trustees president Chris Hahn posted a letter on behalf of his fellow trustees to “apologize for the situation we are in and for how our communication of the cessation of academic operations may have caused confusion and pain.”
CCU is also now providing more resources for students at its website, including a section of responses to frequently asked questions. CCU previously announced a partnership with Central Christian College of the Bible (Moberly, Mo.), which will be opening an extension site in Cincinnati.
CCCB president Dr. David Fincher also shared details about the partnership with CCU as part of a Missouri regional radio broadcast available at www.centralmoinfo.com.
CCU’s website also includes information about campus visits by CCCB and some other accredited “transfer and teach out schools” with whom it is working to help find homes for its students. Four schools from our fellowship are part of that cooperative arrangement: Hope International University, Lincoln Christian University, Milligan College, and Point University.
Meanwhile, two Restoration Movement universities not listed as “transfer and teach out schools” by CCU have made overtures to students.
Kentucky Christian University president Dr. Terry Allcorn announced Monday that KCU will “award the same Alumni Legacy Scholarship to the children of CCU graduates as we award to the children of KCU alumni.”
Johnson University (with campuses in Tennessee and Florida) has created a webpage for CCU students interested in going there.
