System Redesign Phase 3
University Integrations

At its July 2020 meeting, the Board of Governors authorized the Chancellor to review the financial impacts of potentially integrating operations at selected State System universities as part of Phase 3 of System Redesign. This effort is intended to help all State System institutions sustainably provide their students and their communities with affordable, quality higher education for years to come.


The Process

  • Conduct a financial review of financial impacts of potential integrations (July - October 2020)
  • Develop the implementation plan(s) for any integration(s) identified by the Board to move forward (October 2020 - April 2021)
  • Share the implementation plan(s) with the public
  • Submit the implementation plan(s) for final approval by the Board
  • Begin implementation (July 2021 - August 2022) 

Three deliverables will be presented at the October 2020 Board meeting:


Alignment Analysis

This will outline an assessment of the value of potential integrations.


Financial Analysis

This will estimate the financial implications of proposed integrations, including enrollment impacts; revenue and expense impacts; asset, liability, reserve, and investment impacts; and local community, affiliated entity, and use of non-appropriated funds impacts.


Post-October Planning Process

This will outline the proposed implementation roadmap and needs for the project to move forward from October 2020 through April 2021.​
