Fostering Diversity and Inclusion at Penn State


The offices in Educational Equity are operating remotely during the spring 2021 semester. We continue to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives for the University, meeting with students and colleagues via Zoom. Please contact individual units with questions.
