According to WCAX-TV,

Northern Vermont University– Johnson and NVU Lyndon– would shut down under the plan. So would the Vermont Technical College in Randolph.

The Vermont State Colleges System was already in financial trouble from declining enrollment, revenues and competition. And then the pandemic happened and more than $5 million was reimbursed to students for room and board and moving to remote instruction. …

The closures affect about 2,000 students and 500 employees, primarily in the most economically challenged region of Vermont.
