National Conversation on University Mergers Continues

With college and university mergers more common than ever, and speculation continuing of even more, higher education experts are weighing in on the prospects of mergers for the future. Brian C. Mitchell writes for the Huffington Post about the financial strain on many institutions and the drive towards mergers for some as a means for survival.

James Martin and James E. Samels build upon their existing research on university mergers with their new book "Consolidating Colleges and Merging Universities." They write for HigherEdJobs about the benefits of merging colleges for mutual growth, taking advantage of synergies and opportunities for strategic collaboration between two or more institutions.
