Fund Pennsylvania's Future
The State System’s advocacy campaign—Fund Pennsylvania’s Future—calls for state investment to provide PASSHE with an inflationary funding increase to keep tuition affordable for students and a targeted investment to educate students for careers in high-growth jobs and occupations strengthening Pennsylvania’s workforce and economy.
In collaboration with university leadership, students, faculty, staff, trustees and supporters of PASSHE, the State System seeks to achieve the fiscal year 2023-24 funding request by promoting the power and promise of PASSHE – its impact and value – and highlighting how PASSHE can positively contribute more graduates and close Pennsylvania’s talent gap.
Position PASSHE as the high-quality, affordable option to meet the state’s growing talent demand in order to secure impactful state investment supporting education and general operating expenses, including keeping tuition affordable; to remove financial barriers for students; and to support student success and increase credentialing growth in six high-growth program areas: education, business, nursing, computer science, social services, and engineering.
