Get to know the president

Shippensburg University is going through a very transitional time. The Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) is in the middle of redesign, the COVID-19 pandemic has ravaged the world and the U.S. has been going through social and political upheaval over the last few years.  Despite this, the world still turns, and the SU community is faced with another change. In March 2021, Laurie Carter, then SU President, announced she would be leaving the university in the summer. Charles Patterson, then president of Mansfield University, would take her place as the interim president while the search for a new president began.

SU to welcome students with familiar in-person campus life

 Lounges furnished with a handful of couches, plexiglass dividers separating the outside world from workers, half-filled classrooms that felt hollow and smiles that could only be seen in the eyes of masked faces.
