The Board of Governors of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) voted unanimously earlier this month to extend the contract of Chancellor John C. Cavanaugh and 11 PASSHE university presidents, including Cal U President Angelo Armenti, Jr., through June 30, 2014. 

Appointed Cal U’s sixth president on May 19, 1992, Dr. Armenti is president of PASSHE’s Commission of Presidents. He is the longest tenured president among the leaders of Pennsylvania’s 14 state-owned universities.

Under his leadership, Cal U’s enrollment has increased for 13 consecutive years.

“Rather than move to a maintenance mode of operation, he continues energetically and enthusiastically improve this University,” said Leo Krantz, chairman of Cal U’s Council of Trustees. “I believe this University is very fortunate to have President Armenti at the helm.”

Chancellor Cavanaugh was appointed to lead the State System in July 2008. During his nearly three-year tenure, the PASSHE universities have experienced record enrollment growth and an increase in programs accredited by professional organizations. 

“Through his focus on student success, Dr. Cavanaugh … has emerged as one of the leading voices in higher education in the Commonwealth,” said Marie Conley, chair of the Board’s Human Resources Committee. “(He) also has positioned the State System universities as the educational institutions of choice in the Commonwealth.”
