Margo DelliCarpini Selected to Lead the Commonwealth Campuses of Pennsylvania State University

Margo DelliCarpini, chancellor and dean of Pennsylvania State University Abington, has been named vice president for the Commonwealth Campuses and executive chancellor.

In this role, Dr. DelliCarpini will oversee the Commonwealth Campuses’ academic and administrative programs and operations, including strategic and facilities planning; integrating diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging into student recruitment, retention, and the student experience; faculty recruitment and development; program and curriculum development; and select institutional student aid programs. Campus chancellors will report directly to Dr. DelliCarpini, who will serve as the budget executive for the Commonwealth Campuses.

“The Commonwealth Campuses truly fulfill the land grant mission of Penn State. They are the cultural and intellectual hubs of their communities and serve as engines of economic development, bringing Penn State to communities across Pennsylvania,” Dr. DelliCarpini said. “I believe that we are at an inflection point as an institution of higher education and that we have the opportunity to redefine how Commonwealth Campuses support the overall land-grant mission of Penn State, and how they serve as anchor institutions in their communities, building on strengths and history while looking to the future and positioning campuses for the next exciting and successful era of the university.”

Prior to her arrival at Penn State, Dr. DelliCarpini was vice provost for strategic educational partnerships and dean of the College of Education and Human Development at the University of Texas at San Antonio. She previously served as professor and dean of the College of Education at Morehead State University in Kentucky, and as professor at Lehman College, part of the City University of New York.

Dr. DelliCarpini earned a bachelor’s degree in linguistics, a master’s degree in teaching English to speakers of other languages (TESOL), and a doctorate in linguistics from Stony Brook University in New York.
