Penn State Abington invites nominations and applications in the search for its next chancellor. The chancellor serves as the chief executive officer and dean of the College and is responsible for the quality of academic programs in teaching, research, and service, including the promotion and tenure process; strategic planning; budgeting; philanthropy; faculty and staff development; outreach; alumni and community relations; and NCAA Division III athletics. In addition to providing academic and administrative leadership to Penn State Abington, the chancellor is a key executive of the University and serves as a member of the Academic Leadership Council and Council of Campus Chancellors.

Penn State Abington enrolls approximately 4,000 students and offers 21 baccalaureate degree programs, a Master of Business Administration program, and two associate degree programs. Students also have the option of completing the first two years of nearly all of Penn State’s 275 baccalaureate degrees at the campus and then moving to another Penn State campus to complete their studies. The campus is organized into three divisions: Arts and Humanities, Science and Engineering, and Social Sciences. The College’s successful continuing education programs are also valuable to its academic mission and offer corporate learning, off-campus credit education for organizations, and youth programs throughout the year. There are 163 full-time and 211 part-time faculty and 138 staff employees.
