6-1-11: To Merge or Not to Merge

June 1, 2011 at 8:58 am Leave a comment

There’s a debate bubbling through Maryland that will come to a head next winter, when the University of Maryland Board of Regents reports on the idea of whether the University of Maryland College Park and the University of Maryland Baltimore should merge.

College Park, the flagship campus of the system, has 37,000 graduate and undergraduate students.  University of Maryland Baltimore has seven professional and graduate schools that educate most of the state’s doctors, nurses, dentists, pharmacists, social workers and lawyers.

The idea for a merger came last March from Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller, an alumnus of College Park, undergraduate, and the University of Maryland School of Law in Baltimore.

We talk with Senator Miller who is a proponent of the idea and Robert Embry, president of the Abell Foundation, who is opposed to it.
