Students at Georgia Southern University attend the 2016 graduation ceremony. The school is merging with Armstrong State University, but will keep its name.

There is change in the works at two Georgia universities. Earlier this year, the University System Board of Regents voted to merge Armstrong State University and Georgia Southern University. The new school will keep Georgia Southern’s name. Since 2011, the university system has completed seven mergers, in the interests of efficiency and economy. We talked more about this with John Fuchko, the vice chancellor for organizational effectiveness with the University System of Georgia. We also heard from the presidents of Armstrong and Georgia Southern.
