What to look for on Smart Talk Friday, January 18, 2019:

The Pennsylvania's State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) is under new leadership.

Dr. Dan Greenstein officially became the fifth Chancellor this week before presenting his vision  at the quarterly meeting of the Board of Governors.

He said that to steer the State System through these times of "challenge and opportunity" it will have to undergo a "fundamental transformation and redesign."

Greenstein has been on the job since September and recently completed a campus tour of all 14 State System universities.  

 "We are facing significant challenges - challenges that are present across U.S. public higher education, and that are concentrated in super-high doses here in Pennsylvania," Greenstein said.

Chancellor Dan Greenstein appears on Smart Talk to discuss the way ahead for the Pennsylvania's State System of Higher Education universities.
