State System Of Higher Education Moving Forward With Plans To Merge Three Universities

California University, Edinboro University, and Clarion University could merge into one university in the near future.

After a unanimous vote of “yes” from the State System of Higher Education Board, plans are moving forward to integrate three universities on the western side of the state into one.

Those schools include Edinboro, Clarion and California University of Pennsylvania.

Over the next few months, university leaders will work together to formulate a plan on what the three campuses will look like moving forward.
