The Office of Multicultural Recruitment and Community Affairs provides outreach into the community to help ensure that underrepresented students are aware of the resources and opportunities available to them. Our objective is to create a dynamic, multicultural student body at Penn State Harrisburg.
We work with school counselors, churches, and other organizations to make information and programs available to low income, first-generation college goers, and others in need of support in accessing a college education.
Workshops for students and parents cover topics on preparing for college and financing a college education. These programs may be custom designed for students from middle school through senior high. Students are invited to campus for tours, to meet with faculty, and to interact with currently enrolled students, including members of the Multicultural Recruitment Team.
