The Importance of Regional Collaboration
From Dr. Peter H. Garland, Executive Vice Chancellor and Chief Academic Officer atthe Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education:
For the Central Pennsylvania region to continue to flourish, more attention needs to be focused on attracting, retaining and promoting a diverse workforce. The great diversity of employers, communitie and lifestyles available in the region must be matched by thoughtful efforts to ensure talented and engaged people from every background.
For this to occur, collaboration among the region’s employers, colleges and universities, businesses and community organizations must take center stage aswe prepare and attract a range of employers in the region. I am excited about the opportunities that the greater regional collaboration holds for the universities in the state system and our ability to contribute to the dynamic place we call home.
