Passhe (Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education)
The Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE), with 14 universities and more than 112,500 students, is the largest higher education provider in Pennsylvania. PASSHE’s mission is to increase the intellectual wealth of the Commonwealth, to prepare students at all levels for personal and professional success in their lives, and to contribute to the economic, social, and cultural development of Pennsylvania’s communities, the Commonwealth, and the nation.
PASSHE is led by a 20-member Board of Governors that sets broad policy and direction for the System and the universities. PASSHE’s Executive Offices provide advice and support to the Board of Governors, and leadership to our universities as we work to harness the power of public higher education for the benefit and prosperity of all in the Commonwealth.
