PASSHE universities enhance the quality of life in their communities while contributing to the economic and cultural well being of their regions and the Commonwealth.
The staff of the External Relations Division helps to communicate that vital role in a variety of ways, serving as PASSHE's liaison to both state and federal government; working with students, alumni, university trustees and others on advocacy efforts on behalf of the State System; and interacting with the news media, business groups and other educational organizations to deliver the message about the value of Pennsylvania's public universities. Ensuring healthy relationships that are mutually beneficial to both the universities and their host communities are an essential part of PASSHE's mission of ensuring student success.
To that end, the staff of the External Relations Division is proud to offer this online advocacy and engagement site to help enlist broad support for the state system. Our goal is to keep the PASSHE community informed about issues related to higher education and let you know when and how to get in touch with your state legislators.
