You're Invited! PASSHE Consolidation Forum TONIGHT, 6/8 @ 6pm


Please join Keystone Research Center/PA Budget and Policy Center/We The People-PA, APSCUF, PAJB Workers United, PASSHE Defenders, Action Together NEPA, The HUB for Progress and United Students Against Sweatshops TONIGHT, Tuesday June 8 at 6pm for a panel discussion on the State System consolidation plan as well as an opportunity for a guided discussion around organizing against these efforts.

Register here.

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.

Confirmed speakers:

PBPC/We The People-PA - Katy Personette, Deputy Director of Campaigns

APSCUF - Sean Crampsie, Director of Government Relations / Melissa Stough, Kutztown University Student

PASSHE Defenders - Paul Berlet, Kutztown University Student

Following that discussion we will break out into groups to discuss how you can be an advocate on this issue.

In Solidarity,
