Siegal College, CWRU form partnership

Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) in Cleveland and Siegal College in Beachwood will combine their adult education programs into a new initiative to launch this fall, the Laura and Alvin Siegal Lifelong Learning Program at CWRU.

The Siegal College board of trustees approved the alliance at its meeting on Monday evening, Jan. 30, following months of discussion between its own stakeholders and representatives of the university.

The collaboration will integrate the continuing-education programs from each institution, which will increase the offerings available to their respective students, said Terri Kline, chair of the Laura and Alvin Siegal College of Judaic Studies board.

… Siegal College’s degree programs are being phased out, with students completing their courses by June.

Other Siegal College programs and services will continue under Jewish community auspices, including the Aaron Garber Library and the @Akiva programs for high school students… Also, the JECC [Jewish Education Center of Cleveland] will assume responsibility for professional development programs provided to local Jewish educators.
