BLOOMFIELD, NJ -- Following the announcement that Bloomfield College, like numerous small, private colleges throughout the country was facing financial difficulties, Bloomfield Mayor Michael Venezia has released the following statement:
"Bloomfield College makes up a critical part of our township DNA and we are all deeply saddened and concerned to see the recent headlines citing their financial troubles. Their 153 year-long history of academic excellence is an asset to all of us. Bloomfield College is one of the most diverse colleges in the region and has helped so many students achieve their dreams. Unfortunately, the pandemic has made it increasingly difficult financially for small private colleges across the nation. I have personally reached out to President Evans to offer our support. We will do whatever we can to ensure that the college will continue to serve our community."
