The ex-governor told the advisory group that putting all public colleges under the Board of Regents would force the institutions to work together without closing a single university.
Roemer unsuccessfully pushed a similar idea in 1988 when he was governor. Former Gov. Mike Foster — who as a state senator opposed the idea when Roemer pushed it — also tried to put all colleges under a single board.
