Update On Merger Between College of Charleston And Medical University of South Carolina

The merger talks between The College of Charleston And Medical University of South Carolina have been opposed by the Board of Trustees of College of Charleston on February 13, 2014. The bill to merge the schools has been referred to the House Ways and Means Committee for consideration.

College of Charleston And Medical University of South Carolina In Merger Talks

The College of Charleston and Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) will be merged. Mayor Joe Riley said: “The response was overwhelming and extremely positive. People were very enthusiastic. It's like the light bulb went off.” MUSC President Ray Greenberg said the broader context of the discussion was the “future economic competitiveness and vitality” of Charleston. “They have assets we're interested in. We have assets they're interested in,” said College of Charleston President George Benson. He added: “It's still at a very preliminary stage, but what I sense is there's a growing consensus. We're not, in our current structure, reaching our full potential.” A spokesman for the law school and a spokeswoman for The Citadel said administrators at those schools have not been involved in the merger talks. The decision to merge or not to merge will eventually be made by MUSC's and the College of Charleston's boards of trustees and, ultimately, the state Legislature. A working committee has been formed to study the issue. Two board members from each institution, the provosts and the chief financial officers from both schools make up the group, which met once recently.
