During the noontime hour of April 7, the officers of the student government association accepted an award recognizing the Abington campus as a "No Place For Hate" location. This is the fifth year in a row that Penn State Abington has received this coveted designation as assigned by the Anti-Defamation League. Lisa Friedlander, project director of “No Place For Hate" of Philadelphia was on hand to present the re-designation in front of a crowd of faculty, staff and students.
In order to continue to receive this diversity designation each year, Penn State Abington must complete a minimum of three programs/events that “celebrate diversity, challenge individuals on their biases, stereotypes, racism, and bigotry in all forms, and promote understanding, respect, and acceptance.”
Penn State Abington is the only college in Pennsylvania to be designated as a “No Place For Hate” location.
