Pa. auditor says he'll audit state universities

Auditor general plans to audit universities

HARRISBURG, Pa. - State Auditor General Eugene DePasquale says he plans to conduct a performance audit of Pennsylvania's 14-state-owned universities.

DePasquale said Tuesday the comprehensive review will cover the three-year period ending June 30.

He says his auditors plan to examine everything from the process that the State System of Higher Education uses to set tuition rates to the policies on sexual assaults on campus. He says he wants to consider every option for keeping the universities affordable for middle-class families.

About 112,000 students attend the universities in Bloomsburg, California, Cheyney, Clarion, East Stroudsburg, Edinboro, Indiana, Kutztown, Lock Haven, Mansfield, Millersville, Shippensburg, Slippery Rock and West Chester.

The system's current budget totals $1.6 billion.

DePasquale says he expects the audit to be completed in 2015.
