A Message from the Director
The Office of Institutional Equity, Diversity (OIED) is committed to fostering a diverse, inclusive community that encourages all members to reach their full potential through learning, work and service. Here at Penn State Altoona, we envision a community where all individuals embrace and advance the framework for diversity, values and principles articulated by the University. We strive to promote a student experience that embraces diversity.
We offer a range of programs, discussions, social events, resources, guest lectures and events to get you started down the path of self-discovery. If you've already started these processes, OIED programs and services can offer ways to increase your knowledge, enhance your skills, and deepen your appreciation for diversity.
We are here to help you celebrate your unique contributions to this wonderfully complex society, while recognizing equal value in the contributions of others. Perhaps most importantly, we challenge you to think critically and become leaders in resolving the world's toughest issues related to diversity.
I invite you to become an active member of Penn State Altoona's multicultural family!
