PACT Spring 2017 Conference

Sheraton Harrisburg Hershey Hotel

The conference promises to be dynamic and full of valuable information.  We encourage your attendance and active participation in our PACT conferences and workshops!

On behalf of the PACT Executive Board, thank you for supporting the 2016 PACT Fall Workshop that was recently held at the Dixon University Center in Harrisburg on October 7, 2016. It was a great meeting that was facilitated in conjunction with our new partner, Association of Governing Boards (AGB). This partnership has provided PACT with additional resources to continue its focus on Governance and the role of the trustee, along with a special initiative for Board Engagement in College Completion and Attainment. With support from the Lumina Foundation, this initiative is aimed at strengthening institution, system, and state attainment goals by enhancing board governance and leadership. 

Links to the materials AGB provided are located in the navigation on the left.

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.
