|Subject:||Reorganizing the Pennsylvania State University Board of Trustees|
|I soon plan to introduce legislation that would reform the composition of the Board of Trustees for the Pennsylvania State University to make its membership consistent with the other State-Related Universities.
Currently, Penn State is the only State-Related University with only six members of their Board of Trustees appointed by the Governor. Temple, Lincoln, and Pittsburgh each have twelve Commonwealth Trustees (4 appointed by the Governor, 4 appointed by the President Pro Tempore of the Senate and 4 appointed by the Speaker of the House) serving on their respective Boards.
Under my legislation, the Penn State Board of Trustees, as with the other State-Related Universities, would be composed of 34 voting members:
Additionally, the Governor, the Secretary of Education, and the Secretary of Agriculture will serve as non-voting, ex officio members of the Board.
Please join me in cosponsoring this legislation.
Introduced as HB2258
