Distinguished Service Award from TLT to recognize all faculty

To honor the achievements of Penn State's faculty throughout the pandemic, Teaching and Learning with Technology (TLT) will issue its first and only planned Distinguished Service Award to the entire Penn State faculty as part of the 2021 Penn State Faculty and Staff Awards ceremony.

Three professors combined review more than 19,000 transfer courses

The raw numbers are staggering: nearly 87,000 courses have been added to the Credit Transfer Tool since 2016. More than 90% of reviewed courses have some type of equivalency at Penn State, and over 50% have a direct equivalency to a Penn State course. Among the 200-plus faculty reviewers, three Penn State professors have completed nearly 20,000 of the transfer course reviews.
