    Default OT: New sheriff in town at LHU

    This is off-topic, I know, with the division-deciding matchups this weekend and all, but this guy caught my attention. If you're interested in the future of PASSHE I think you'll find the new LHU President has a great perspective.

    He is not your usual university president. His previous job wasn't Provost or VP of Academic Affairs. His background is financial, first in the private sector and more recently in higher education. He is an innovator and it will be interesting to see what he can do at The Haven. Link below.

    Absolutely some good stuff in there.

    If you're on Twitter and this stuff interests you, I suggest you follow the new chancellor Dan Greenstein at @dan_greenstein.

    Did he get Ms Taylor’s approval?

    His workforce development comments are spot on, IMO. That's what I've been saying when this topic comes up and I believe it's where the PASSHE as a whole needs to go.

    Agreed. PASSHE schools need to prove their value to the immediate local economy - not as an employer but as what the value is for the education they provide. He's dead on about college being worth the cost when you consider the higher earnings over your lifetime. Couple that with a PASSHE education being just as good for less money and the average graduate having less loan debt than PSU/Pitt/Temple/Private graduates and *boom* there's your value.

    But I'm still on board with throwing out the Board of Governors. They got us into this mess of system-wide labor contracts that guarantee costs everyone but West Chester knows they can't afford.
