I have written several times about the transition of the College of Santa Fe, most recently in Joint Ventures at the for-profit/non-profit interface. Doug Becker, Chairman and CEO of Laureate Education, Inc, kindly wrote me to clarify the exact situation regarding the relationship between the College, the city of Santa Fe, the state of New Mexico, and Laureate. It seems that the city of Santa Fe, with financial support from the state of New Mexico, now owns the campus on which the College sits, and leases that land to Laureate. Laureate itself owns the College of Santa Fe.
Several readers had requested an update on the current situation of the College. Thanks to Doug, we now have clarity on the complex ownership situation.
