The Florida Legislature is weighing a proposal that would begin the process of merging two of the state’s smaller colleges with two of its larger institutions.¬†Under the plan, the New College of Florida would merge with Florida State University, while Florida Polytechnic University would combine with the University of Florida. The smaller institutions would also transfer their assets to the larger universities.¬†The proposal makes Florida the latest state to consider merging its public institutions as a way to address enrollment declines and to help lower higher ed spending.
