Florida explores opening online only public university
Florida is considering creating a new state university, just months after Gov. Rick Scott defied the university system’s board by signing legislation to turn a satellite campus into the state’s 12th public university. Under the new proposal, the board itself would oversee the planned 13th university, which would have neither a campus quad nor a football team. The potential campus would be entirely online.
This past July, the system’s Board of Governors hired a consulting firm to determine the feasibility of creating “OnlineU.”
