Samuel Merritt (Oakland, CA)
Project was shelved in 2009-2010 due to lack of financing. Lately, it has started recruiting high level staff with an intended start date of Fall 2014 with deans/associate deans on board by summer 2012.
Central California SOP (Fresno, CA)
No action/info since 2010, website is now defunct and links to spam. Last mention in public records was March 2010 when Dr. Lynch, the project leader, spoke at a city council meeting. The property that was purchased in 2006 is currently on the market (4144 N Millbrook Ave Fresno, CA). The corporate address listed (8839 N. CEDAR AVENUE, #77) is a Postal Annex box. Corporate entity still exists and is registered. I just called the last known phone number (559-476-2940) and it goes directly to an unconfigured vmail box.
American University (Signal Hill, CA)
Announced, currently seeking founding dean & staff (job postings as of May 2012). Likely opening Fall 2014 depending on funding and staff searches.
Chapman University/Keck Graduate Institute (Claremont, CA/Orange, CA)
Announced, currently seeking founding dean/ & staff. Likely opening Fall 2014 depending on staff searches.
My opinion: will be the strongest new school opening due to the academic reputations of the two institutions involved. Additionally, funding shouldn't be a problem as Chapman Univ. attempted to pay $50M for the Crystal Cathedral in a bankruptcy auction in CASH.
Current # of schools = 8
If all the pending schools open in 2014 = 12
I hope your cali peeps don't start to flood the AZ market.
