Grand Canyon University, selected last month as the recipient of a 217-acre campus in Northfield, Mass., that was to be given to a Christian institution, has decided that it will not accept the property after all.

Jeffrey M. Silber, an analyst with the investment bank BMO Capital, speculated that the decision signaled a recognition by the company that the benefits of developing the campus would not be seen for several years and might require it to commit more resources than it initially thought.
