The University of Dubuque has abandoned plans to buy part of the campus of Sheldon Jackson College, an Alaska institution that stopped operations several years ago amid financial difficulties, The Telegraph Herald reported. Dubuque officials were looking to buy only part of the campus, for selected academic offerings, and said that the idea was scrapped because some Sheldon Jackson trustees wanted only to sell the entire campus for a plan to revive the college.
