Today, we offer our students an exceptional education taught by world-class educators and supported by innovative teaching methods and technologies. The College of Education is able to continue this course thanks to philanthropic investments.
Below are the priorities of our University-wide campaign, For the Future: The Campaign for Penn State Students. We have established goals that will ensure that our students can receive the best possible preparation for teaching in a complex and changing society and that our researchers can create new understanding of human learning across the span of life and the boundaries of nations.
Students with the ability and ambition to attend the University will have this opportunity through scholarship support.
Students of exceptional ability will experience the best honors education in the nation.
Students will thrive in a stimulating atmosphere that fosters global involvement, community service, creative expression, and personal growth.
Students will study with the finest teachers and researchers.
Students and faculty will come together within and across disciplines to pioneer new frontiers of knowledge.
Students will continue to work and study with faculty whose scholarship is enhanced by continuing philanthropic support.
The College of Education aims to raise $29 million or more to support these university-wide initiatives, with emphasis on scholarship support, faculty strength, and dedication to interdisciplinary, groundbreaking research.
