More Autonomy For Pas State Schools

04.11.14 | Terry Diener

The board of governors for Pennsylvania's 14 state-owned universities Thursday gave member schools greater autonomy to create minors and certificate programs and approved additional tuition price flexibility experiments. The board also voted to give local universities a greater role in helping the system vet prospective campus presidents, part of a wider effort to defuse campus-level criticisms that the system is not responsive to the needs of individual campuses and does not move fast enough to respond to market changes.
