Some PA state colleges in danger of closing - Associated Press

In the coming months, some of the schools in Pennsylvania's 14-university system of higher education may get pink slips. Dropping post-recession enrollments, financial struggles at some system schools and unwillingness by the state to come to the rescue is driving an exploration that could result in recommendations that some of the schools shut their doors. Such closings are relatively unheard of among state university systems, although they may become more common amid dropping higher education enrollments nationwide and state aid languishing below pre-recession levels. In Pennsylvania, closing universities has the potential to become a hot issue. The universities date back more than a century, drive local economies and carry a mission to provide low-cost education.
