The Moon Sets–UB Cuts Ties With Unification Church

UB President Laura Trombley

From Linda Conner Lambeck, CT Post:

The University of Bridgeport has severed its ties with the Unification Church, President Laura Trombley announced in a letter to the university community that was released on Friday.

During the May 17 meeting of the UB Board of Trustees, the body unanimously voted to amend the university’s bylaws to remove any references to and governance rights of the Professors World Peace Academy, an affiliate of the Unification Church, Trombley wrote.

“This amendment finalizes a termination process, which was long under way,” Trombley said. “The board expressed its gratitude for previous support.”

UB has been affiliated with the church and its controversial leader, the Rev. Sun Myung Moon, since it received a financial bail-out in 1992. The support kept the university from closing.

  1. Just remember that they did bail out the school when it was doomed! Time to move on. I would assume that the school is financially ready for this. Now I hope that they start buying out a bunch of those rundown homes to expand the school more. Go from the industrial city to a nice collage city!!!!
