More Colleges Are Seeing the Virtues of Merging: Experts Predict a Wave of Consolidations, as Institutions Seek Economies of Scale.
Van der Werf, Martin
Chronicle of Higher Education, v47 n28 p26-27,30 Mar 2001
Describes the recent trend toward collegiate mergers. Six mergers of higher education institutions were announced between November 200 and March 2001, with another three in negotiations. Mergers represent the last effort by an institution to salvage some of its identity before having to close completely, and many small schools are seeing the advantages of consolidation. (SLD)
