Campus and Learning Site Closings Nearing 20,000

Since 1984, more than 19,000 campus and learning sites have been reported as closed. Over the last generation, night schools and satellite campuses have dwindled as online leaning has replaced them. Universities have also closed campuses in foreign countries. While online education may be more convenient, little is known about the effectiveness of this mode of instruction in terms of learning outcomes, completion rates, and consumer return on investment (ROI). The peak year for closings was 2016, when 1183 campuses and learning sites were reported closed.
