Presidential Goal #1: Enhance student success


By Chris Buchignani


Dr. Justin Schwartz, Interim Executive Vice President and Provost (former Dean of the College of Engineering) is charged with elevating the overall Penn State experience for students across the University system. This effort encompasses the academic resources available to students as well as those geared toward life outside the classroom and after graduation, including benefits of the University’s sprawling alumni network. Co-leads are Kelly Austin (Vice President for Commonwealth Campuses and Executive Chancellor) and Andrea Dowhower (Interim Vice President for Student Affairs).

Focus areas that caught our eye:

  • Aligning academic offerings and advising with a student’s strengths and sense of purpose, and bringing these in line with employment trends and employer experience data
  • Making paid internship opportunities possible for all students
  • Enhancing the University’s commitment and offerings related to student mental health and financial literacy
