President's Equity Commissions


The Commission on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Equity (CLGBTE); the Commission on Racial/Ethnic Diversity (CORED); and the Commission for Women (CFW) are advisory bodies to the Penn State President on matters that pertain to equity concerns at Penn State. While the commissions focus on their own specific areas of interest, they also collaborate on common equity issues as they arise.

The Commissions are now accepting applications for both appointed and affiliate membership. Appointed members serve three- to four-year terms (depending on the commission) and have voting privileges. Affiliate members serve one-year, renewable terms and do not have voting privileges. Appointed and affiliate terms begin on July 1, 2014.

The commissions value the breadth of background and experience that can be found among the members of the University community and are actively seeking a broad base of applicants. Students (undergraduate and graduate), faculty, staff, and administrators from all Penn State campuses are eligible to serve. Individuals interested in working to enhance diversity and support the missions of CLGBTE, CORED, or CFW are encouraged to apply. Staff members may wish to speak with their supervisors about this University service opportunity prior to submitting an application.
