UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Diversity, inclusion and social justice all have an articulated importance in the Penn State College of Education. That is increasingly evident through the actions of the college's faculty, staff and students, who are working hard to bring about social change and realize more student success in diverse populations.
The most recent example of this commitment is the Prison Education and Reentry Summit, held March 29-30 on the University Park campus.
"The College of Education’s mission speaks explicitly about its commitment to both the development and the utilization of human capabilities wherever they exist,” said College of Education Dean David H. Monk. “Prison education programs speak directly to both parts of our mission, as these programs develop capabilities and also focus efforts on making effective utilization of the capabilities that are developed."
