“LHU ranks first among PASSHE schools for performance funding |  Lock Haven University has ranked first among The Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) universities for performance in the 2017-18 academic year. The Performance Funding Program is designed to measure the outcomes of each university in the areas of student success, comprehensive access to opportunity, and stewardship of PASSHE and Commonwealth resources.

The assessment is based on institutional performance and peer comparisons on 10 measures that align with the themes of success, access and stewardship. The measures are divided between five mandatory measures and five optional measures selected by each institution. All indicators of university performance are measured according to their progress toward institution-specific goals and against external comparisons based on similar universities.

While LHU tied for first in the 2016-17 cycle, this year’s awards see LHU in first place for performance funding, having earned the most points out of all 14 universities for meeting performance expectations. The achievement will provide LHU a total of $2,592,046 in funding.

“Our staff and faculty are to be congratulated for their dedication and hard work which have led to this impressive distinction,” Dr. Michael Fiorentino Jr., LHU president, said.
