Frank T. Brogan is the new chancellor of the Pennsylvania System of Higher Education.
The PSSHE Board of Governors voted 15-0 Wednesday morning to hire Brogan, currently the chancellor of the State University System of Florida, to be the fourth leader of the 31-year-old Pennsylvania agency that operates 14 state-owned universities, including Kutztown and East Stroudsburg. Brogan will oversee a $1.6 billion budget and more than 12,150 employees and 115,000 students.
That responsibility will carry a $327,500 salary, the highest salary in all of state government, when Brogan starts Oct. 1.
Brogan, an Ohio native, began his career as a classroom teacher before serving as a dean of students, assistant principal, principal, superintendent and Florida’s Commissioner of Education.
In choosing Brogan, the board kept with its tradition of choosing a chancellor with a background in education rather than someone with a background in education policy or business like another finalist Ron Tomalis, Gov. Tom Corbett‘s ex-state education secretary.
