Welcome to Penn State Outreach

Penn State Outreach supports the University’s core missions of service and engagement by delivering compelling, evidence-based content developed by University faculty to diverse audiences while creating meaningful learning opportunities for students.

Outreach engages its constituents in a purposeful, reciprocal dialogue that identifies critical issues and opportunities, and then utilizes the intellectual resources of the University to deliver solutions that improve communities.

Outreach’s programming leverages faculty expertise, external partnerships, institutional priorities, and funding opportunities to maximize impact on people in Pennsylvania, the nation, and the world.
