The Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) Board of Governors is scheduled to appoint Shippensburg University’s interim president at its meeting Thursday.
In the public meeting agenda, which is available online at passhe.edu, PASSHE officials list the business under No. 13, “Board Consideration.”
The board will appoint the university’s interim president and will also issue a resolution honoring current SU President Laurie Carter.
Carter announced on March 4 that she will depart the university this summer to take the same position at Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin.
Carter began her tenure at SU in August 2017 following the retirement of former president George “Jody” Harpster.
SU community members expressed concerns of potential integration or consolidation during PASSHE Chancellor Daniel Greenstein’s virtual visit to campus on March 8.
Greenstein responded by saying, “There are no plans to consolidate Ship.”
He also noted that PASSHE and university policy outline an interim president search process and said more information would be available after the April PASSHE Board of Governors’ meeting.
The meeting is scheduled for 9 a.m. and will be on Zoom. Members of the public may dial in at 1-646-558-8656 and use meeting ID: 979-8078-6196 or access the stream online on PASSHE’s YouTube channel. For more information on how to access the meeting, visit passhe.edu/meeting.
