The restructuring proposed for the PASSHE system will have a devastating impact on the economy of many counties and will undermine educational opportunity and the economic future of our state. We need to provide more access to higher education — not less. Especially in our rural communities and as we continue to fight back from COVID-19, we must give students every chance to succeed — and that starts with a high-quality and affordable college education.
At 6pm a panel of impacted stakeholders will discuss and answer questions regarding the proposed State System consolidation of Bloomsburg, Lock Haven, and Mansfield in the north and Edinboro, Clarion, and Cal U in the west. These consolidations of public higher education institutions will have lasting impacts on students, families, employees, and communities.
