HARRISBURG – Senator Joe Pittman (R-41) released the following statement today following the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) Board of Governors vote to freeze tuition for the 2023-24 academic year:
“For several years, we have worked to support Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP), to give them the opportunity to stabilize finances and enrollment, given their significant role within our region as an economic engine. Preserving access to affordable higher education options for families has been one of the top priorities for Senate Republicans again in this year’s budget process.
“I am extremely pleased we were able to work with PASSHE to continue our strong multi-year investments to ensure IUP will have the resources they need to hold the line on tuition for the fifth straight year. This will go a long way toward ensuring students receive the educational and training opportunities they need to compete in today’s economy.”
