Dana College's board members -- backed by Nebraska leaders -- are trying to keep the college alive by finding a way to get its accreditor to let the accreditation transfer if private investors buy the institution, The Omaha World-Herald reported. The Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools rejected that idea last week, leading the investors to say that they would not purchase the college and the college to announce that it would close.
