Pine Manor College learned this week that the Town of Brookline is considering seizing part of its property.
The College has expressed strong opposition to the town's plan. We believe that this massive disruption will put the transformational work that is going on at Pine Manor College at a huge risk. As President O’Reilly stated in his letter to Brookline Town Meeting Members,”Pine Manor College is a special place that is worthy of protection and support. Co-educational since 2014, U.S. News and World Report named Pine Manor College the second most diverse college in the U.S. with 85% of our students being students of color. 84% of our students are the first in their families to attend college. More than 50% are multi-lingual.”
We encourage you to stay informed and engaged, as the public process on this proposal is about to begin. Here's a link to last night's NBC coverage of the story:
The entire Pine Manor College community, and especially our students, appreciate the ongoing support in fighting this proposal that will disrupt students learning and disturb our institution's mission-driven work. If you are interested in supporting us please feel free to contact the President's office at 617-731-7101.
