>>Pennsylvania System Of Higher Education Considering Combining Universities
(Lehigh, PA) -- The Pennsylvania System of Higher Education is considering the idea of combining several universities so they can remain financially sustainable without having to borrow money. This idea would combine Clarion with California, Edinboro with Slippery Rock and Lock Haven with Mansfield, which would all operate under one administrative team, with one budget and one faculty. Though the universities would be combined through this plan, they would maintain their campus identity. The next step to get this idea rolling is for a plan to be developed and presented to the board around April of next year.
