<div style="clear: right; float: right; width: 400px;"></div>The Pennsylvania State University
is a geographically dispersed university system with campuses located throughout the Commonwealth
. While the administrative hub of the university is located at its largest campus, University Park
, 19 additional commonwealth campuses
enroll 38.9 percent of Penn State's undergraduate student population.
Under the present administrative structure, enacted by the Penn State Board of Trustees
in 2005, the 19 undergraduate campuses (not including University Park and Penn State's special-mission campus, the Pennsylvania College of Technology
) are overseen by the Vice President for Commonwealth Campuses. Each campus is led by a chancellor (a position that replaced the existing titles of campus dean
and campus executive officer
) who reports to the Vice President.
While all 19 campuses are considered part of Penn State's Commonwealth campus system, 14 presently do not have "college" status and are referred to collectively as the University College
. These campuses, while having their own chancellor, also report to the Dean of the University College, a position concurrently held by the Vice President for Commonwealth Campuses.
