ADVOCACY CAMPAIGN: Fall 2021 - Spring 2022
While the State System is fundamentally retooling itself to increase opportunities for students and to ensure our institutions are here to serve Pennsylvanians for decades to come, a stronger renewed partnership between the System and the General Assembly is critical to the System’s pursuit of transformation and growth, further strengthening universities’ financial stability and making more affordable and accessible a State System education.
We can make the greatest difference for Pennsylvania students and our institutions when we work together. Help advance the System’s public mission of access and affordability and request for increased state support. Share news and messages promoting the impact and value of a State System education with your social networks and building relationships with state legislators.
For Fiscal Year (FY) 2022-23, the State System is seeking:
- A historic general appropriation increase of 15% ($73 million) to $550 million to more fully respond to the State System’s and universities’ real running costs.
- $201 million in direct state funding to reclaim our affordability advantage, reducing the financial burden on students.
