Scottish university to sell ‘white elephant’ US campus
Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) launched GCNYC in September 2013 but it struggled to attract students and was unable to award degrees until nearly four years after it opened. GCU said the campus had “not reached its potential” and that the university would look to exit New York.
