Few institutions follow a premeditated plan and consider the impacts a merger will have on the involved institutions’ internal and external stakeholders. Mergers, undoubtedly, present risks and costs to the newly consolidated institution’s capacity to transform.

Access to post-secondary education continues to be a critical driver of upward mobility, providing bachelor’s degree holders higher wages and greater opportunities for advancement throughout their lifetimes. Yet a rapidly changing economy, shifting demographics and needs of students, increasing but still low completion rates, and a growing demand for 21st Century Skills are compelling higher education leaders to test new models for higher education that provide opportunities for life-long learning, more flexible education and career pathways, and opportunities to learn, apply, and communicate a broader, interdisciplinary set of skills.
