Community College Consolidation

Inside Higher Ed
May 12th, 2015

Two community colleges roughly 75 miles apart in northwest Ohio are creating a new regional government agency smack-dab between them so they can consolidate many administrative functions and -- potentially -- academic and other programs, too.
Those prospects excite the leaders of the two institutions, Terra State and Northwest State Community Colleges, who say the arrangement will help them save money that can be shifted to improve student services. But the idea worries some faculty and staff members at the two institutions, who see it as a precursor to a merger and lost jobs.
The Northern Ohio Community College District, as the new entity will be called, was announced by the presidents of Northwest State and Terra State Monday after their boards approved a framework of the plan over the weekend.
