The Georgia Board of Regents on Tuesday approved a plan to merge 8 of the 35 institutions in the University System of Georgia. The consolidations of four pairs of colleges will take 12 to 18 months, said the system's relatively new chancellor, Henry (Hank) Huckaby. The system hopes to increase academic offerings and cut back on administrative costs with the mergers. Some jobs will be eliminated.
