The Pennsylvania State University

Penn State’s global engagement is multidimensional, broad-based, and spans the teaching, research, and service mission of the University. A globally ranked global Land-grant university with research expenditures in excess of $1B, Penn State sends approximately 3,000 students abroad every year to over 50 different countries through a diverse portfolio of academically grounded education abroad opportunities, and warmly welcomes over 9,000 graduate and undergraduate international students from more than 140 countries. In any year, we may host some 800 visiting international research scholars and a third of our research publications are with international co-authors at over 3,000 institutions outside the U.S. Penn State also has significant strategic partnerships with several universities around the world that leverage our joint physical and intellectual capital. Penn State Global’s strategic plan for 2020-2025 is designed to ensure pervasive global learning and research across the University, and to continue Penn State’s elevation as a global university with a global identity for advancing knowledge, educating future leaders, and solving the world’s greatest challenges. The Pennsylvania State University is committed to and accountable for advancing diversity, equity, inclusion, and sustainability in all of its forms. We embrace individual uniqueness, foster a culture of inclusion that supports both broad and specific diversity initiatives, leverage the educational and institutional benefits of diversity in society and nature, and engage all individuals to help them thrive. We value inclusion as a core strength and an essential element of our public service mission. Penn State is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer, and is committed to providing employment opportunities to all qualified applicants without regard to race, color, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability or protected veteran status.
