Partnership to build 'Virtual University'
SHIPPENSBURG, Pa. - A three-year partnership among Shippensburg, Millersville and West Chester universities will use the latest technology to create a "Virtual University" serving the entire south central Pennsylvania region.
The South Central Pennsylvania Alliance project will receive $800,000 approved by the State System of Higher Education's Board of Governors. The project is one of five approved by the board totaling $2.6 million.
The project, which will eventually serve as a model for all state system universities, is a 36-month effort with four teams beginning to work in the first year.
