Saitama, Gunma Universities to Merge

In what will be the first unification of national universities across prefectural boundaries, Saitama and Gunma Universities plan to merge in two years. The plan calls for the education departments of both colleges to be combined in Saitama, and the literature and science schools to be fused into a new department in Gunma, in October 2004. The presidents of both universities have been discussing the plan since January. The merged institution will have the second largest faculty in the country, after Tokyo University.
