PSU Harrisburg Names New Interim Chancellor
Last week, Penn State Harrisburg named Mukund Kulkarni as interim chancellor, replacing Madlyn Hanes effective July 1. Hanes is leaving to become Penn State’s vice president for commonwealth campuses.
Kulkarni has been senior associate dean for academic affairs at Penn State Harrisburg since 2006. Kulkarni, a professor of Finance, has been very active at Penn State Harrisburg since he joined as a member of the business faculty in 1985. He was also the director of the School of Business Administration from 1996-2006.
The only commenter on the PennLive article, sliceofpizza, sums up this move best with this quote:
THAT CAMPUS IS IN MIDDLETOWN NOT IN HARRISBURG I GUESS X MAYOR REED ( HBG MAYOR REED ) DEMANDED THAT IT BE CALLED PSU HARRISBURG BECAUSE IT LOOKS BETTER THEN PSU MIDDLETOWN.
ALSO DID JOEPA GIVE HIS OK THE THE INTERM CHANCELLOR
Yes, this poor commenter with a marginal grasp of the English language has a point –did JoePa give his OK to the interim chancellor? The public must know!
