Meeting in Harrisburg today and tomorrow


Today is the first of two days of meetings for the State System of Higher Education Board of Governors. 


In addition to considering the purchase of land near the Robertshaw building and president Michael Driscoll’s proposal to pay off the debt on the Kovalchick Complex, the governors will also act on a proposed adjustment to IUP’s nonresident tuition plan.  The State System has begun exploring the possibility of offering reduced nonresident rates to students from neighboring states in order to increase enrollment.  IUP would be able to charge 170 percent of the resident rate to first-time freshmen and transfer students from Maryland and New York, just as it does for students from Indiana, Michigan, New Jersey, Ohio, Virginia, and West Virginia, as well as any out-of-state student with a GPA of 3.0 or higher.  Incoming students from other states would still be charged 250 percent of the resident rate.


A governors’ committee work group will also examine the issue of the safety of minors who visit State System campuses.  Although not specifically linked to the Sandusky child sex abuse case at Penn State, the work group’s directive references the Freeh Report on the Sandusky investigation.  IUP’s Susanna Sink is serving on that panel representing university adminstration and finance staff.
