Jefferson, Philadelphia University Plan Merger
The Boards of Trustees of Thomas Jefferson University and Philadelphia University today announced the signing of a Letter of Intent (LOI) to exclusively pursue the integration of the two universities. The move signals a recognition by both boards that creative partnerships will be central to the future of education and 21st century career paths. Next steps will include continued dialogue between the two organizations to arrive at a Definitive Agreement in 2016 that would lead to the creation of a comprehensive university that delivers high-impact education and value for students in health, science, architecture, design, fashion, business and engineering.
