University Park

Annual Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day program canceled

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- This year's Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day, scheduled for April 28, will not be held at Penn State's University Park campus due to budgetary constraints.

The program, presented in the past by Penn State's Office of Human Resources and Educational Equity, is being eliminated as the University attempts to capture savings wherever possible due to a lack of appropriation money from the Commonwealth. Activities that are not core to the mission of the University are being scrutinized for potential reinvestment in other more necessary programs.

Penn State employees are still invited to bring their daughters and sons to work on April 28, however there will be no coordinated central program or organizing activity destinations for participants, nor any featured luncheon speaker. Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work program is a national effort to expose girls and boys to what a parent or mentor in their lives does during the work day as a way to introduce them to careers and share the value of their education.
