Logan Steigerwalt, president of Slippery Rock University’s Student Government Association, is taking part in the State Systems’s #InvestInMe advocacy campaign. /strong>
#InvestInMe is a social media advocacy campaign focused on engaging the more than 100,000 students of Pennsylvania's State System of Higher Education. Students from all 14 universities in the State System should be seen as an investment for the state - not just as expenditure. And when you consider that 80 percent of those students will remain in Pennsylvania after graduation, contributing to their local communities and the commonwealth, it becomes even clearer. With that in mind, students have a unique perspective to offer regarding the importance of funding for public higher education. When we invest in our public universities, we are investing in students who create a real return on that investment, many times over.
