North Carolina governor Beverly Perdue urges lawmakers to reject plan that would merge several of the state's 58 community colleges

Gov. Beverly Perdue on Monday called on lawmakers to reject a proposal to merge several of North Carolina's 58 community colleges to save money.

A recent legislative study found that the community college system is inefficient because each of the campuses is locally autonomous. They lack uniform policies and procedures, and administrative costs per student are about 50 percent higher at smaller colleges, according to the study.

Merging colleges with fewer than 3,000 students into larger campuses nearby could save the state more than $5 million a year by 2018 by combining back-office functions like payroll and information technology and eliminating some administrative positions, according to the study.

Halifax Community College in Weldon, Nash Community College in Rocky Mount, Piedmont Community College in Roxboro, Sampson Community College in Clinton and Wilson Community College in Wilson are among the campuses that could be closed under the proposal.
