Penn States Creates a Joint Diversity Awareness Task Force

298px-Pennsylvania_State_University_seal.svgPennsylvania State University has created a new Joint Diversity Awareness Task Force made up of students, faculty, and administrators. The goal of the task force will be to undertake a review of issues related to cultural awareness and to make suggestions and recommendations on curricular and out-of-class climate changes that could enhance the environment for all students at the university.

Vice provost at Penn State, Rob Pangborn, stated, “The incidents of intolerance and lack of respect and understanding in recent months have underscored the need for the University community to engage in discussions at many levels to seek ways to improve the climate for diversity at Penn State. The Joint Diversity Awareness Task Force has the opportunity to make a lasting impact within the general education curriculum and other curricular and co-curricular learning experiences of both current and future students.”
