A bill introduced in the General Assembly by Del. Danny Marshall is designed to help the New College Institute (NCI) become a branch campus of a public university.
Marshall, R-Danville and a member of NCI’s board of directors, introduced the bill on Jan. 22. The bill would let NCI and any public university in Virginia enter into an operations and governance agreement that would lead to the merger of the schools or the university being delegated or assigned some or all of the institute’s duties.
The bill now is before the House Committee on Education’s higher education subcommittee.
