Dr. Daniel Greenstein, chancellor of Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education, will meet with faculty, staff and students at Edinboro University on Monday, April 15.
Greenstein is in the midst of his second round of visits to each of the 14 State System campuses.
“I am visiting the campuses to continue the conversation we started with faculty, staff and students last fall,” Greenstein said. “I want to hear from all members of our campus communities as we advance the State System redesign. Engagement by all is critical as we move forward together.”
All members of the campus community are invited to attend an open forum with Chancellor Greenstein from 1:45 – 2:45 p.m. in Van Houten Dining Hall North. During the forum, Greenstein will discuss the ongoing State System redesign and answer audience questions.
In addition to the open forum, Greenstein will meet separately with faculty and staff representatives, Interim President Michael Hannan, members of the senior leadership team, and Edinboro’s Council of Trustees.
Greenstein became the fifth chancellor of Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education on Sept. 4. In this role, he serves as chief executive officer of the State System, which operates Pennsylvania’s 14 public universities, serving nearly 100,000 degree-seeking students and thousands more enrolled in certificate and other career-development programs.
Greenstein previously led the Postsecondary Success strategy at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, where he worked with other higher education leaders across the country on initiatives designed to raise educational-attainment levels and to promote economic mobility, especially among low-income and minority students. He developed and implemented a national strategy for increasing the number of degrees awarded and for reducing the attainment gaps among majority and non-majority students at U.S. colleges and universities.
Before joining the foundation, Greenstein was vice provost for Academic Planning and Programs for the University of California (UC) system. In that role, he oversaw system-wide academic planning and programs, including the University of California Press; the California Digital Library; the UC system’s Education Abroad Program; internship programs in Washington, D.C., and Sacramento; and UC Online Education.
He holds both bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Pennsylvania and a Ph.D. from the University of Oxford.
