The senate, which represents all Penn State faculty, seeks ways to improve communication and collaborative decision-making across the university. Making the trip were Daniel R. Hagen, senate chair; Larry C. Backer, chair-elect; Pamela P. Hufnagel, secretary; Susan C. Youtz, executive director; and Karen L. Duncan, senior associate registrar. The group met with college administrators, Governance officials, faculty representatives and student leaders; toured Madigan Library, the Parkes Automotive Technologies Center and the Avco-Lycoming Metal Trades Center; and had lunch in Le Jeune Chef Restaurant. Each fall, officers travel to about one-third of the campuses in the Penn State system. They visited Altoona, Fayette, Worthington Scranton, Wilkes-Barre, Hazleton and Schuylkill in September, and will travel to the College of Medicine at Hershey in November.
