Radio Smart Talk for Wednesday, September 26:
Central Pennsylvania is home to several well respected universities and colleges that are considered anchor institutions in their communities. Millersville University is certainly one of them in Lancaster County and throughout the State System of Higher Education.
Much of the school's success in recent years has been attributed to the leadership of President Dr. Francine McNairy, who is leaving Millersville after nine years. During that time, the university has seen many changes, including raising student enrollment to around 8,700 and the minority student population to 11% -- it's highest level ever. New programs have been added and new buildings constructed and acquired.
All this comes at a time when budgets are tight. Millersville hasn't been without episodes of fiscal pain either.
Dr. McNairy will appear on Wednesday's Radio Smart Talk as part of our semi-regular discussions with Central Pennsylvania academic leaders to discuss Millersville, its future, higher education and the institution's role in the community.
