Live: Spanier to Appear Before Senate Committee

Later this afternoon, the State Senate Appropriations Committee will convene a panel in Harrisburg to discuss the funding of Pennsylvania’s state-related universities, chief among them our dear Blue & White.

Penn State President Graham Spanier will address the legislators, along with his colleagues from Temple, Pitt, and Lincoln. These hearings happen fairly regularly in the budgetary cycle, but this year should be more of a vigorous exchange than normal given the drama surrounding Governor Tom Corbett’s proposed cuts to higher education.

OnwardState.com and StateCollege.com will both be there producing live coverage of the event. Check back later today for a liveblog and multimedia from Harrisburg.

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.
