LOGAN, Utah (AP) -- Utah State University is looking at creating two new schools -- a college for fine arts and a school for vocational education -- at the Logan campus.
University President Stan Albrecht says the recommendation comes from deans and department heads.
Albrecht says the standalone schools could be a way for the university to raise more donations by naming them after donors.
Utah State has a Caine School of the Arts. It's organized in the College of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences. Albrecht says Utah State could capitalize on that fine-arts program by organizing it as a separate college.
He discussed the proposals during a State of the University address on Tuesday.
