Grassroots Network to mobilize statewide advocacy for Penn State

April 29, 2003

Penn State's state appropriation per student is the lowest in the Commonwealth -- lower than Pitt, Temple and all 14 universities in the State System of Higher Education, and lower than any other public institution in the Big Ten. The Penn State Grassroots Network, an initiative of the Penn State Alumni Association, is working to change that. Come to the University Park Town Hall Meeting at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 30 at the Hintz Family Alumni Center to learn more about the Penn State Grassroots Network and how to become an advocate for the University. President Graham Spanier will discuss the University's current appropriation request and its impact on Penn State.
