The news coming out of Dubai this morning is that Michigan State University is closing down their campus effective immediately. While the MSU campus was struggling financially, they were pushing forward with a heavy recruiting schedule throughout the Middle East & many other countries. However, finding students who met admissions standards and who were interested in staying on the Dubai campus was difficult.
So far, the only article I’ve seen has been in the UAE-based “The National” – which strangely included this quote:
Prof Kim Wilcox, the provost and vice-president of MSU, said that in the current climate many students and parents were not keen on the idea of studying in the US.
Apparently Professor Wilcox has either been misquoted or has not followed MSU’s kick-ass international recruiting team & their fantastic success in bringing students on to the East Lansing campus from all over the world.

[Update] There is a short update about this on Inside Higher Ed
