The two schools announced today they have started merger negotiations on how to make the 1,000-student college a part of the 33,000-student research university.
The campuses of the two institutions are less than one mile apart. Both schools have historically strong ties to the Boston Public School system and to the City of Boston.
Over the upcoming weeks, the leadership of Boston University and Wheelock College will be working with our faculties and our academic and administrative leaders to shape the vision of our merged academic units and services. We believe the merger will enhance Boston University's programs, as well as preserve the mission of Wheelock College to improve the lives of children and families.
