We believe that the Schreyer Honors College is "shaping people who shape the world." This is a big and diverse place, full of people with different political views, social experiences, religious convictions and personal backgrounds. If we are to make positive and lasting changes then we need to be full and complete citizens of our global community. In practice this means many things, including developing and fostering a diverse community, making available to our students transformational experiences and teaching critical thinking skills that are coupled to a strong moral compass.

We hope that you will join us in building this community and having a lasting and ethical impact on our world. On this page you will find links to a variety of resources and opportunities available in the SHC and at Penn State. Whether student, faculty, staff, parent or alumnus we hope that you will consider being a part of our Diversity Council, helping us support our students in their development and growth, and in recruitment, as we strive to build the strongest and most diverse honors community in the nation.
