Rally to be Held on Monday to Protest Cuts

The Collegian reported yesterday that student leaders will be holding a rally at 12:00 on Monday to protest the $2.3 million cut in Penn State’s appropriations and its exclusion from the Pennsylvania Tuition Relief Act.

The rally was organized by UPUA President Gavin Keirans in conjunction with Council of Commonwealth Student Governments President George Khoury. The two leaders reached out to other organizations:

Some of the organizations whose members will be attending the event include the Penn State’s NAACP, the Interfraternity and Panhellenic Councils, the Graduate Student Association and Safeguard Old State (SOS), Khoury said.

This rally stands in contrast to the others that have been held this year in that it’s not the administration that is being protested but rather the state. Indeed, administrators are considering attending the event, according to the Collegian article.

Penn State and the Process of Life

To paraphrase Mark Twain: The reports of higher education’s death have been an exaggeration. American universities produce more research and relevant knowledge for the world at large than any other institutions I know of. Tuition may be too damn high, but over the long-run, undergraduate degrees are definitely worth the cost. But Penn State could be so much more. It used to be, I think.
