On April 1, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf and Senator Vincent Hughes visited the Community College of Philadelphia's West Regional Center, and took time to meet with students from our West Philadelphia Skills Initiative. During his visit, Governor Wolf discussed his 2015-2016 budget proposal, which makes historical investments in K-12 public education, reinvests in higher education, and commits to fully restore cuts to colleges and universities over the next two years.

In return for the governor's investment, he is calling on our state institutions of higher education and community colleges to freeze tuition. The state will also work with community colleges and the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) to develop individual college plans that address performance, affordability, student completion and transformation through structured career pathways and partnerships with employers.
