The Conference Planning Committee has been hard at work finalizing the agenda, which promises to be full of informative and engaging sessions to support the System’s key strategic initiatives:
Ensuring Student Success
Leveraging University Strengths
Transforming the Governance / Leadership Structure
Since this PACT agenda is consistent with the deliberations currently before the Board of Governors, this is a perfect opportunity for Councils of Trustee members to influence system redesign. In advance of the agenda, following is a quick snapshot of the conference agenda and sessions:
New Trustee Orientation
Executive Assistant’s Retreat
Student Leadership Workshop
Joint PACT Executive Board and Council Chairs Meeting
Networking and Business Meeting
Keynote speaker, Dr. Merryl Tisch, Governor Emeritus, New York Board of Regents

Closing Plenary Session Luncheon with Interim Chancellor Karen Whitney and Board of Governors Chair, Cynthia Shapira
On behalf of the PACT Executive Board and Conference Planning Committee, we thank all Trustees, sponsors and Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education Foundation for their continued support of the PACT, which has provided our trustees with the opportunity for professional development and deeper understanding of the complex issues the System is facing.
The PACT Executive Board is pleased to offer "The Role of Trustee in Pennsylvania's State System of Higher Education." This document was designed to provide not only an initial orientation for new trustees in conjunction with their university orientation, but also to provide a reference tool for all our State System trustees.
