Brewton-Park College is closing its Liberty County Campus.
Dr. David R. Smith, Brewton-Parker’s president, said due to economic hardships the college announced that it’s going on an “academic diet.”
“The college will retrench in both programs and personnel this semester. The BPC Board mandated an increase to the student-to-faculty ratio following an internal analysis of planning and operations of the college,” said Smith in a statement.
The cutback will directly affect the local branch of the college.
“BPC will reduce its academic majors by about 50 percent at the close of the fall 2009 semester. It will also close most of its external campuses, including Norman Park and Liberty County campuses. Some non-faculty employees will be laid off in the next two weeks. Majors that are not being retained only serve 10 percent of the college’s enrollment,” the statement said.
