Why not merge UMB, UMBC?

Why not connect UMBC with UM schools in Baltimore?

Some legislators are proposing re-consolidating University of Maryland College Park with University of Maryland Baltimore ("Renewed push to combine UM College Park and UM Baltimore gains steam," Feb. 24).

If they want to save on administrative costs, why not have greater consolidation of University of Maryland Baltimore County with the UMB graduate schools? UMBC President Freeman Hrabowski has proven to be a AAA+ administrator who is pro-student and pro-Baltimore City.

There is already student shuttle service between the two schools. The new institution would be the University of Maryland Baltimore!
