State System Of Higher Education Receives Final Consultant Report On Strategic Review

The National Center for Higher Education Management Systems Friday delivered its final report on the strategic review of Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education—a report commissioned by Chancellor Frank T. Brogan and the Board of Governors.
The NCHEMS report builds on the consultant’s public presentation to the Board of Governors last week by providing additional information regarding each of its recommendations.
"Chancellor Brogan and the Board of Governors have demonstrated real courage and leadership in choosing to undertake this system review—looking at every level of the organization and beyond," said NCHEMS President Sally Johnstone. "They recognized that decades of mounting issues had to be addressed in a new way and have taken action to bring them to the forefront."
“With the final report in hand, we will be able to take a much deeper look at the findings and recommendations as we determine the path forward for the State System,” said Board of Governors Chair Cynthia D. Shapira. “We will review the report thoroughly in the coming weeks and use it to help shape an action plan for the future that focuses on students first, and ensures they continue to have access to high-quality, high-value education that leads to a career path, at each of our 14 universities.”
