Pennsylvania’s 14 state-owned universities are taking a big financial hit due to the coronavirus shutdowns.

The State System of Higher Education was already facing several challenges before the pandemic due to stagnant funding and declining enrollment. Now, Chancellor Dan Greenstein says even with the help of federal stimulus money, the system stands to lose 52 million dollars just through the beginning of fall semester:

 Plans for reforming the system were already underway before the pandemic. Greenstein says such efforts need to be accelerated and will include shared academic programs and services among the universities as well as reducing the size of operations to match a school’s enrollment.

The state system includes Bloomsburg, Millersville, Kutztown and Shippensburg universities.
