The Southern Berks News - - LOCAL NEWS -

The Board of Gov­er­nors of Penn­syl­va­nia’s State Sys­tem of Higher Ed­u­ca­tion se­lected Daniel Green­stein, for­mer Gates Foun­da­tion di­rec­tor, as the State Sys­tem’s fifth chan­cel­lor.

Board of Gov­er­nors Chair­woman Cyn­thia D. Shapira called Green­stein’s se­lec­tion “a game changer” and his ap­point­ment “makes the strong state­ment that we are com­mit­ted to our mis­sion of pro­vid­ing ac­ces­si­ble, af­ford­able, qual­ity higher ed­u­ca­tion to stu­dents while serv­ing the needs of the Com­mon­wealth, even as we re­design ourselves for the fu­ture.”

“Dan comes to us with an in­cred­i­ble level of knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ence and the demon­strated tem­per­a­ment nec­es­sary to achieve great things. He will use all of that to help achieve ex­cel­lence for our stu­dents and stake­hold­ers, and—in­deed— to write the tem­plate for 21st Cen­tury pub­lic higher ed­u­ca­tion in the na­tion.”

As di­rec­tor of the Gates Foun­da­tion’s Post­sec­ondary Suc­cess strat­egy, Green­stein 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.
