Equal Opportunity Planning Committee announces funding for multiple programs

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- The Office of the Vice Provost for Education Equity announced the University programs that will be supported by Equal Opportunity Planning Committee (EOPC) funding in summer 2015 and academic year 2015-16.

Every year, the funds help colleges, campuses and academic support units implement diversity goals as part of the University’s diversity strategic plan, "A Framework to Foster Diversity at Penn State: 2010-15." This year, one program will create playful experiences using technology and physical props to enhance student engagement with the campus as a diverse community and an active learning environment, and another will record the lived experiences of diverse members of various Penn State campuses to share with their respective campus communities the goal of shifting awareness of difference and provoking new insights into appreciating diversity and inclusion.
