Large mergers are underway across higher education institutions in western Norway. As of January 2017, my job will be with the newly formed Western Norway University of Applied Sciences, which has 5 campuses and around 16,000 students. I have been told that our music department will be the largest in western Norway - within what has become one of the nation's biggest public universities - and that we will continue to have its largest programs for music teacher education. We also continue to be affiliated with the Grieg Research School for Interdisciplinary Music Studies. I hope the new university websites will manage to keep up with all these new developments.
