Dear NLC Community,

I am deeply saddened to report that yesterday the Board of Trustees directed me and the College’s officers to develop a plan to close the College.

As you know, the College has been facing significant financial difficulties and the Board reluctantly decided to accept the inevitability of our closure. We do not have a specific date for closure yet but will provide information as soon as we can detailing how the shutdown will proceed. This process will likely take many months.

Please be assured that in all of our proposals, we are keeping the best interests of our students in our hearts and minds. We are developing a concrete timeline with multiple options for current students to complete their degrees in an affordable and accessible way. National Labor College is proud of our students, our work, and our many successes.

Once again, as soon as we have specific information about the closure, we will share it with you.
