University integrations is intended to increase opportunities for students while ensuring our institutions are here to serve for decades to come. By bringing California, Clarion and Edinboro together in the West and Bloomsburg, Lock Haven and Mansfield together in the east we can:
- Expand program breadth while maintaining essential residential character at each campus
- Capitalize on existing strengths at all institutions; achieve more together than any one of them could do alone
- Invest in new areas to serve new students who need our help, growing enrollment, driving regional economic development
- Re-tool and strengthen supports for all students
- Reduce administrative costs investing savings in student success
We want to hear from you!
We invite you to read the plans and offer comments through any of the following opportunities:
The State System values your input and has developed processes that ensure we consider every comment we receive. Each week, the Integrations Teams evaluates all comments to identify potentially actionable recommendations that would be included in the final plan. Every comment is being reviewed for how it might help inform the next update of the plans. While we welcome all comments, we specifically encourage you to share actionable suggestions that can help enhance the plans. The Board and the public will be updated at various intervals along the way regarding this analysis. Prior to the Board’s next vote, a report will be produced that outlines how the plans evolved based on the input received.
