EAST STROUDSBURG, October 9, 2015 – East Stroudsburg University president Marcia G. Welsh, Ph.D. today announced that State Senator John P. Blake has been selected as their 2015 Legislative Fellow. Senator Blake was introduced to the university faculty, students, staff and special guests from the community at an on-campus breakfast earlier today.
“I am deeply honored to be selected to serve as East Stroudsburg University’s Legislative Fellow for the 2015-16 school year,” Blake said. “East Stroudsburg is a world-class institution and I strongly believe that this program presents a great opportunity to continue to establish a working relationship between legislators and our higher education community to ensure Pennsylvania state government is working to better our communities and improve the academic experience for all students in the Commonwealth.”
The East Stroudsburg University Legislative Fellow program, established in 1999, is designed to bring state legislators to campus to participate in a variety of campus activities and to meet formally and informally with students, faculty and staff throughout the year.
The program is co-sponsored by the university administration and the local chapter of the Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties (APSCUF). Fellows are selected by a committee of faculty and administrators, and jointly appointed by the university president and the president of APSCUF at the beginning of each academic year.
