WAU Trustees Vote to Proceed With Establishment of Branch Campus at AUC

Columbia, MD—The Trustees of Washington Adventist University (WAU) today voted to proceed with a formal agreement to establish a branch campus at Atlantic Union College (AUC) in South Lancaster, Mass. They voted a business plan, new governance structure and operating plan for the branch campus.

The university will now seek approval from required state, regional and church accrediting agencies. In addition, WAU officials will present the plan to delegates at the Washington Adventist University Constituency April 15. In turn AUC officials will present the plan at the Atlantic Union College Board of Trustees meeting April 11 and constituency meeting June 13.

The expansion positions WAU to serve the educational needs of students in 15 states in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern United States and the island of Bermuda.

WAU will provide updates as they become available via email and at www.wau.edu and www.auc.edu. Inquiries should be directed to William Jackson, vice president for Marketing and Recruiting at WAU at (301) 891-4475 or wjackson@wau.edu.
