Georgia Regents Approve Sixth Merger in the University System!

Dear Commons Community,

The Chronicle of Higher Education is reporting that the University System of Georgia’s Board of Regents approved a plan to merge Georgia State University and Georgia Perimeter College, laying the groundwork for what would be the system’s largest institution. Consolidation has been a favorite strategy of system leaders, who have now approved six campus mergers in three years, as a response to declining levels of state funding.   The mergers have also involved:  Gainesville State College and North Georgia College & State University; Middle Georgia College and Macon State College; Waycross College and South Georgia College; Kennesaw State University and Southern Polytechnic University; and Augusta State University and the Georgia Health Sciences University
