The Pennsylvania Consortium for the Liberal Arts (PCLA) is pleased to share these updates to the four person Executive Committee of the PCLA Board.

James A. Troha, PhD, president of Juniata College, continues his service to the Executive Committee as vice-chair. New to the Executive Committee are S. Brock Blomberg, PhD, president of Ursinus College and Alison R. Byerly, PhD, president of Lafayette College. They join Board chair Kimberly W.

We thank Presidents Blomberg and Byerly for their willingness to serve the Board in their new roles and are looking forward to a productive 2019-20 academic year!

The Pennsylvania Consortium for the Liberal Arts (PCLA), founded in 2014, is a consortium of eleven small liberal arts colleges across the commonwealth of Pennsylvania (Bryn Mawr, Dickinson, Franklin & Marshall, Gettysburg, Haverford, Juniata, Lafayette, Muhlenberg, Swarthmore, Ursinus, and Washington & Jefferson Colleges) serving ~20,000 undergraduate students.

The PCLA is governed by the eleven member Board of Presidents, which is in turn led by a four person Executive Committee. The daily administration of PCLA activities is guided by the implementation manager. The PCLA office is hosted by Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster, PA with employment and financial services provided by Washington & Jefferson College in Washington, PA.
