Multicultural Outreach

The Multicultural Outreach office seeks to create a diverse student body through access and exposure to Penn State opportunities and resources.

We recognize and believe strongly that the diversity of faculty, staff, and students enriches all of us and enables our mission of research, teaching, service, and economic development.

Penn State President Eric J. Barron

At Penn State, we believe that a diverse campus environment is the best way to challenge our students to consider new cultures, perspectives, and traditions.

Students of color comprise more than 20 percent of our student body, but we know that number can always be better. To achieve that goal, Undergraduate Admissions has several teams of dedicated professionals throughout Pennsylvania who are charged with enhancing diversity through multicultural outreach.
