President Davie Jane Gilmour and Zack Moore, a Penn State administrator and member of the Pennsylvania College of Technology Board of Directors, are among the leaders named to The 2022 Higher Education Power 100, released Monday in acknowledgement of the most powerful educators in The Keystone State.

“The commonwealth’s higher education institutions have been changing the world for years as they’ve shaped the minds of the next generation,” the article states, before profiling each honoree. “City & State PA’s 2022 Higher Education Power 100 … recognizes the individuals who are redefining what it means to be a leader in this field.”

Serving as president since 1998, Gilmour is credited with growing the college into a national leader in applied technology education and initiating numerous partnerships with business and industry leaders. Under her leadership, the editors wrote, “(Penn College) substantially increased its degree offerings, established its first graduate-level programs and pioneered a STEM apprenticeship model through its workforce development division.”

Moore’s bio notes that, as Penn State’s vice president for government and community relations since 2007, he has earned a reputation as an effective lobbyist for Penn State, his alma mater and the state’s flagship university system. “Moore honed his advocacy skills at both the U.S. House and Senate before leaving Washington, D.C., for State College, where he is responsible for federal, state and local relations,” the publication continues. “(He) is particularly passionate about communicating the value of Penn State’s land-grant mission.”
