Assumption College Freezes Tuition, Lays Off 15 Employees

Assumption College in Worcester, Mass., recently announced a tuition freeze for incoming freshman and laid off fifteen employees including faculty, administration, and staff, according to

Just a week after the Catholic college announced a guaranteed tuition freeze for four years for incoming freshman and even extended its application deadline, the college announced the layoffs.

"The restructuring plan, which includes the reduction of 15 employees from various divisions of the college, was necessary to address current challenges facing the higher education community, specifically maintaining or reducing costs for students," Michael K. Guilfoyle, college executive director of communications, said in a press release.

The college released a statement to the Worcester Business Journal saying that these same problems are being seen at "many other institutions of higher learning and businesses." The statement also said that the layoffs are an attempt to make higher education more affordable.
