NASHVILLE, Ark. (AP) - The University of Arkansas has approved a plan to add two more community colleges into its system.

UA System trustees voted Thursday to absorb Pulaski Technical College in North Little Rock and Rich Mountain Community College in Mena. The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/25pUACL ) that the system will now have seven two-year schools.

The board approved the mergers at its regular meeting at the Nashville campus of Cossatot Community College of the University of Arkansas.

Rich Mountain has 932 students and is the state’s smallest two-year college. School President Phillip Wilson says students will now have more programming options. The school also has satellite campuses in Mount Ida and Waldron.

Pulaski Tech now serves more than 7,000 students in central Arkansas.
