PASSHE leader: Closing campuses would be 'irresponsible'

State System of Higher Education Chancellor Dan Greenstein reiterated Monday his stance that closing one of the system’s 14 campuses would be “irresponsible public policy,” despite enrollment challenges.

Greenstein told the Pennsylvania Press Club that the lack of state investment in public higher education “threatens the state’s economic well-being.” The state ranks 49th in the country for the state share of higher education funding, but Greenstein noted that bringing that number in line with the national average would result in a 22-percent tuition cut for students.
