Shippensburg University has offered classes off-campus in Harrisburg for decades featuring programs like the master’s in public administration, bachelors and master’s in social work, master’s in public administration, and our doctoral program in education leadership, to name just a few. After the closing of the Dixon University Center, SU partnered with Central Penn College to host graduate classes on their campus.
While SU will continue to sustain and enhance our high-quality education for students, we will also maintain and develop programs and services for citizens, businesses, industries, schools, and governments in the South Central PA Region and beyond. Overall, our purpose is to help build a better, stronger region - economically and culturally - through people who have the abilities, skills, and values to compete in a technologically evolving world.

Tracing their history to 1871 and 1881 respectively, Shippensburg University and Central Penn College have been preparing generations of students for success in an ever-evolving world.
