Penn State Altoona offers the appeal of a small, private college with the name recognition and prestige of a major research university. Our goal is to help students reach their educational, personal, and professional goals.
The root of Penn State's success is founded upon the ambition and determination of our talented and diverse faculty, staff, and students. At Penn State, we think ideas and solutions come from bringing in a multitude of perspectives. We are not just a University; WE ARE community-driven to make a difference!
Penn State Altoona aims to cultivate partnerships with graduate programs that graduate large numbers of underrepresented minority faculty by hosting their All But Dissertation students as adjunct faculty on our campus. The intent is to build pipelines of diverse applicants and, consequently, a more diverse faculty body.
