The Pennsylvania State System of Larger Schooling Board of Governors has chosen a reputation for the brand new establishment that may oversee Bloomsburg, Lock Haven and Mansfield Universities: the Commonwealth College of Pennsylvania.
The board voted in July to merge six universities into two. Bloomsburg, Lock Haven and Mansfield now exist underneath one umbrella establishment within the northeastern a part of the state, whereas California, Clarion and Edinboro Universities have change into one establishment within the western a part of the state. Every campus will retain its personal identify and model identification. Current foundations and alumni associations can even stay separate, and every campus will proceed its athletics packages, logos, colours and mascots.
In October, the board selected Pennsylvania Western College because the umbrella identify for California, Clarion and Edinboro Universities.
