Becker Acquisition

In the spring of 2021, Becker College announced it would be permanently closing in both Worcester and Leicester.  In June of 2021, the Town of Leicester entered into a license agreement with Becker College to explore the possibility of acquiring its Leicester holdings.  The acquisition of the Becker campus required both a Town Meeting and ballot vote. The proposed acquisition passed at both Town Meeting on September 14th and at the Special Election on September 21st.  The Town took full ownership of the Becker Leicester Campus on December 29, 2021. 

The Select Board has established 9 working groups to explore reuse options for the former campus.  Meetings for each group are open to the public and are only available in person at this time.  Meetings will be televised on LCAC when possible.
