Campus Ministry

Campus Ministry

Under the direction of the Division of Student Affairs, our volunteer campus ministry staff of Penn State Altoona welcomes you to the college. Our goals are to help nurture spiritual values, to encourage students to maintain and develop their faith, to provide an open setting for discussion of religious, moral and social problems, and to cooperate with other campus groups in providing for a holistic approach to personal and community growth. If you have any further questions, please contact our Coordinator of Equity, Diversity, and Campus Ministry, Matt Stumpf.
