Essentials of Institutional Transformation: Growth Amid a University Merger (APLU Case Study)
Association of Public & Land-grant Universities
Coalition of Urban Serving Universities
Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
Georgia State is one of three universities for which the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) and Coalition of Urban Serving Universities (USU) released three roadmaps examining how urban-located universities can thrive during major change.
The case studies show how institutions can turn the challenges presented during institutional mergers, leadership transitions, and new performance-based state funding models into opportunities to advance equity and institutional transformation.
The other two institutions featured include Florida International University and Portland State University. The case studies/roadmaps took nearly six years of intensive work by Georgia State, FIU and Portland State, along with APLU and USU. It was done as part of the Frontier Set initiative funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
The Georgia State case study outlines how the university navigated the merger with Perimeter College, overcame challenges, and incorporated feedback from faculty, students and staff to inform the consolidation process – with a clear vision to adopt and scale student success initiatives that have been demonstrated to make a true difference.
