Pennsylvania System of Higher Education sets plans in motion to combine 6 schools into 2
The board overseeing Pennsylvania’s 14 state-owned universities gave preliminary approval to combining six of those schools, acknowledging the plan may not be perfect but seeing it as the best path forward to address severe financial and enrollment woes.
The vote, a historic one, sets in motion a 60-day public comment process in advance of a final vote in July.
If approved, California, Clarion and Edinboro universities would come under one umbrella, as would Bloomsburg, Lock Haven and Mansfield universities.
