​​​Dear Trustees,

A joint meeting of PACT Executive Board and Council Chairs was held June 24, 2021. Overall, it was a productive meeting that provided many avenues to consider to aid trustees in building a stronger Council and how to best support each other, our respective universities, students, and System overall.

The following are highlights from the meeting:

  • Volunteers are needed for the Advocacy, Governance and Leadership, and Conference Planning Committees. Representatives from each university are encouraged. 
  • The Operating Budget for Fiscal Year 2021-2022 was approved and dues will remain reduced for the coming fiscal year. Additional funds were allocated for Advocacy efforts. More information will be shared soon about this initiative.
  • The 2021 Fall Conference will be held at Kutztown University. (SAVE THE DATE: October 15, 2021)  More information and details are forthcoming.
  • The Spring 2022 Conference date is to be determined. (Location: Hershey Lodge and Convention Center) More information will be shared at a later date.
  • Please take the time to reference the System’s website where you will find up-to-date information about our Board of Governors and their meetings, communications and other details regarding the integration plans, work the State System Foundation is doing,  and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion​ events. Each respective area has a wealth of information, and we encourage you to take the time to look over and be informed. 

Thank you for all you do and wishing everyone a safe summer. More information and details regarding upcoming conferences and committees will be shared as soon as it’s available.


Jack Wabby
PACT President

On behalf of the Pennsylvania Association of Councils of Trustees (PACT), we extend a special thank you to all who have sponsored and supported the PACT over these past two years. It is with your generous support that the PACT is able to continue its work in supporting our students, universities and the System.  Although the PACT was unable to hold its annual spring meeting in 2020, we look forward to meeting in person later in 2021. 

Thank you.
