UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — As our University responds to the public health concerns presented by the novel coronavirus, Penn Staters are coming together in new and amazing ways to overcome the collective challenges faced by our communities. 

During these challenging times, the Penn State spirit of “We Are” is more important than perhaps ever before.  

In that spirit, we want to hear stories of how you or other Penn Staters are coming together for the greater good — to innovate, solve problems and continue to realize Penn State’s commitment to excellence. 

Use this online form to tell us how you or another Penn Stater is going above and beyond the call of duty and demonstrating the Penn State “We Are” spirit. 

Whether it’s a professor who has gone that extra mile during the transition to remote instruction; students offering tutoring help after remote classes or collecting health care supplies for those in need; or staff members making donations to the local food bank, we want to hear your “We Are!” stories. 

Every act of the “We Are” spirit matters. Share yours with us

Students, faculty, staff and other community members from every Penn State campus are encouraged to submit their stories. 

Thank you for everything you do for the Penn State community. We Are!
