A weekly public affairs show about McKeesport and the Mon Valley, produced in cooperation with WEDO (810) and WZUM (1550).
Guest: Jacqueline Edmondson, new chancellor of Penn State University's Greater Allegheny Campus in McKeesport
Topic: The evolving role of a Penn State campus in the Mon Valley
How Discussed: Penn State's McKeesport campus has evolved from a commuter campus offering two-year degrees to a campus with a growing percentage of residential students --- many of them from other countries --- offering four-year degrees in a variety of programs. What does Edmondson see as the advantages and disadvantages of such a campus experience? How are students and faculty getting involved in the broader Greater Pittsburgh area?
