The governing boards of Middle Tennessee State University and Valparaiso University have endorsed the transfer of Valparaiso’s law school to the Murfreesboro campus, leaders from both institutions announced Wednesday, Oct. 10.
MTSU’s Board of Trustees approved an agreement outlining the transfer, as well as a recommendation to create a College of Law and establish a Juris Doctor degree, at a special Oct. 10 meeting. The vote followed approval of the document last week by Valparaiso’s Board of Directors.
The proposal now goes to the Tennessee Higher Education Commission for consideration.
