Vermont’s state colleges poised to adopt unification plan for survival’s sake
Trustees of the Vermont State Colleges are poised to endorse a plan in which all three of the system’s four-year schools would eventually merge into one “Vermont State University.”
The consolidation of Northern Vermont University, Castleton University, and Vermont Technical College under one common accreditation is part of a sweeping plan to make good on the system’s promise to transform itself in exchange for extra help from the state.
“It will be more student-focused, it will serve the state better, and it will get us to a place where we’re on a sounder financial footing,” state colleges Chancellor Sophie Zdatny said.
