HARRISBURG—Governor Tom Corbett's Advisory Commission on Postsecondary Education will hold its second regional public meeting on Friday, June 1, in Philadelphia.
The meeting, featuring a number of guest speakers and inviting public comment, will be held from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Global Philadelphia Association/Reed Smith, 2500 One Liberty Place.
Scheduled speakers include representatives of Neumann, Drexel and LaSalle universities, as well as University of the Sciences, Manor College, the Milton Hershey School and the Veterans National Education Program.
