|Subject:||Centralized PASSHE Board of Governors|
|I intend to introduce legislation to centralize the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) Board of Governors (Board).
Specifically, this proposal repeals and replaces the structure and duties of the PASSHE Board of Governors. The new centralized Board will:
The centralized Board of Governors will consist of nine individuals. Eight members are appointed by the Governor, the House Speaker, House Minority Leader, Senate President Pro Tempore, and Senate Minority Leader. The remaining member is a faculty member appointed by their peers. The member institutions will be administered by a nine-member council of trustees.
This centralized system is modeled after the Florida State University system.
Please join me in co-sponsoring this important legislation.
Introduced as HB2551
