We are Penn State

How do thousands of individual "me’s" turn into a powerful "us," all to make the world a better place?

It’s not just one reason. It’s a "We" of reasons. 

Like 24 campuses and our top-ranked online World Campus educating over 100,000 students a year.  

Plus, the most pride-filled and powerful alumni network in the world.  

A dedicated faculty who work across disciplines sharing, collaborating, and doing,  

Making us a top 25 research university. 

A health enterprise serving 2.8 million+ people.

And the students, the thinkers, the artists, the athletes, the doers, the dreamers, and makers who have raised over $168 million to fight pediatric cancer with the largest student-run philanthropy in the world. 

Plus, our hard-working staff who make it possible.  

That’s how individuals who come here to imagine, invent, and collaborate become one community that is open and inclusive. 

To solve problems affecting us all.  

To create jobs.

And to build a future we want to live in.  

In Pennsylvania and beyond.  

We are Penn State.
