The State System of Higher Education of Pennsylvania on Monday published a couple of consolidation plans for two groups of public universities.

The plans were published eight months after the university system announced its intention to consolidate six universities. The state's higher education system has fought with the decrease in inscriptions and funds from the anemic State for years, and the Covid-19 pandemic pushed the system to accelerate its plan for financial sustainability.

The Board of Governors published the online plans in advance of a busy week of hearings and students' advocacy focused on consolidation plans. The Pennsylvania state system of higher education representatives is scheduled to formally submit the two plans for the Board on Wednesday, and Board members will decide if they start a period of public comments of 60 days. The state credits of the Senate and the Education Committees are planning to hold a public hearing on Thursday's plans. jQuery (document) .Ready (function (function () var whatsubmit; jQuery ('# Block-Block-Block-181 .Popular-Link') .click (function () whitsubmit = jQuery (this) .attr ("HREF"); GA ('Send', 'event', 'in the popular article at this time', 'in the article', aleming););); .Panel-panel.

    Meanwhile, groups of students who have contested the consolidation of Higher education in Pennsylvania will stay virtual events this week to prepare a response to a response to a response to the two plans. Dozens of students from state public universities, as well as state residents, have expressed concern that Chancellor Daniel Greenstein rushes consolidation without first promoting the state legislature to better finance the system.

    The first plan, denoded the Western Integration Plan will consolidate the University of California of Pennsylvania, University of Clarion and the Edinboro University, which are located in the western part of the State. The second plan, called the Northeast Integration Plan, will consolidate the University of Bloomsburg, the University of Lock Haven and the Mansfield University. The second group of universities is grouped in the northeastern part of the state.

    Each consolidated university will have a president, who will inform the Board of Governors through the Chancellor, according to the plans. The consolidated universities would also have a shared registration management strategy and student support services, such as academic advice, financial assistance, health advice and well-being, library services and professional advice.

    More than 50,000 Pennsylvania students enroll in according to the Western Integration Plan, in accordance with the Western Integration Plan. In an attempt to capture part of that market, the Western Consolidated University would offer a range of programs totally online that would integrate existing programs, including undergraduate degree and undergraduate programs, the plan said.

    The two plans do not detail exactly how consolidation efforts will affect employees. At the Western Consolidated University, registration is expected to increase by 2 percent year with the year. If enrollment projections are met, system officials expect the consolidated university to maintain their faculty levels and can hire more faculty members as part of their online offers.

    At the university consolidated northeast, the registration is expected to increase
