Administrators To Discuss Penn State Strategic Plan At Town Hall

Provost Nick Jones will host a town hall on Penn State’s strategic plan for 2016-20, “Our Commitment to Impact,” on Wednesday, January 23. Originally scheduled for November 15 before being canceled due to snow, the meeting will be held in Foster Auditorium at the Paterno Library from 1:30 to 3 p.m. and be streamed online here.

“Our Commitment to Impact” includes five areas of focus intended to maintain the university’s values under the current five-year plan: transforming education, enhancing health, stewarding our planet’s resources, advancing the arts and humanities, and driving digital innovation.

Marie Hardin, dean of the Bellisario College of Communications, Stephanie Lanza, director of the Edna Bennett Pierce Prevention Research Center, and Kevin Snider, chancellor of Penn State New Kensington, will join Jones on a panel to discuss the plan.
