COLOMBIA , S.C — Governor Nikki Haley has undertaken a broad effort to hold higher education more accountable with a performance-based funding plan.

DIVERSEEDUCATION.COM REPORTS:

[The new funding plan] raises questions of how the new formula might affect historically Black institutions and small, technical colleges, which often serve high percentages of the state’s minority and rural students.

Meeting with officials from various publicly funded universities, Haley is weighing several options that are on the table, including consolidation of South Carolina’s public HBCUs. In a similar case, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has already proposed merging historically Black Southern University at New Orleans with the University of New Orleans.
