Advisory Commission on Post Secondary Education

When Gov. Tom Corbett unveiled his proposed 2012-13 budget in February, he issued an executive order creating the Advisory Commission on Postsecondary Education.

The purpose of the Commission is to make recommendations related to the establishment and maintenance of a robust and responsive postsecondary education system in the Commonwealth for the 21st century to serve the students and citizens of the commonwealth.

The Commission consists of 31 members who represent various interests associated with postsecondary education in Pennsylvania.

This website was created to provide information about the Commission’s work, as well as serve as a resource for the citizens of Pennsylvania.
