The leader of Pennsylvania’s state-owned university system says he’s not there to make tweaks; he’s there to make transformational changes.
Chancellor Dan Greenstein appeared in a hearing with the House Appropriations Committee today and talked about the system’s declining enrollment, rising costs and diminishing support from the state.
He’s says it’s going to take discipline to turn things around.
He had asked for a budget increase of almost $38 million but last week, Gov. Tom Wolf proposed an increase of $7 million.
Clarion, Mansfield, Slippery Rock, Edinboro and IUP are among the 14 state-owned universities.
