List of Colleges and Universities that have Closed, Merged, or Changed their Names
The intent of this exercise is to offer a place that individuals can consult to see if an institution is now closed or if the name has been changed due to a merger or for other reasons.  Some institutions may’ve been “colleges in name only”…for this list, if the institution referred to itself as a college or university, it was included.  
Separate files are linked below for each of the states and the District of Columbia.  I also included a link for international institutions and look forward to any contributions or suggestions from those with knowledge of institutions outside the United States.
The lists are maintained as a hobby and I appreciate any updates, corrections, links to additional information, or suggestions to improve the usefulness of the list(s). 
Feel free to E-mail to Ray Brown.
