Wisconsin Looks to Merge 2- and 4-Year Campuses

The University of Wisconsin may merge the state’s 13 two-year colleges into its system in an effort to keep the smaller schools afloat as higher ed student populations and high school graduation numbers continue to decline.

Advocates say the merger would give the university system deeper reach into remote areas of the state and would allow for easier transfers, according to a news release from the UW-System.
