Rendell: State-related schools to get stimulus $$$

rendellspanierlolGovernor Rendell said today that $42 million of federal stimulus money appropriated to Pennsylvania will be used to support Pennsylvania’s four state-related universities: Penn State, Pitt, Temple, and Lincoln.

Hopefully the money is not just divided into quarters, as Penn State has 92,633 students compared to a combined 66,671 students at the other three universities. If the money is divided on a per student basis, Penn State would receive approximately $24 million. That’s probably not going to happen, but that $24 million seems familiar… oh yeah, that’s how much Penn State wanted its appropriations increased.

Graham Spanier is in Harrisburg today meeting with state officials about our budget. He told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review:

“That doesn’t represent an increase in our budget,” said Penn State President Graham B. Spanier. “It just gets us back to zero.”

Looks like he remembers the $20.3 million cut in Penn State’s appropriations proposed by Rendell just last month.

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.
