Pennsylvania Plan Would Tie New College Funding to Performance Targets

November 15, 2012

Pennsylvania's colleges would need to meet performance-based targets to win new state funding under a recommendation by Gov. Corbett's commission on higher education. The proposal calls for "performance scorecards" that would take into account measures such as controlling tuition costs, opening access to low-income students and other underserved groups, and tailoring programs to meet workforce needs. Among other measures recommended for consideration are closing achievement gaps, on-time graduation rates, and contributions to the state's economic development.
