Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in the Penn State School of Theatre

At Penn State’s School of Theatre, we are working together to build a more welcoming, inclusive and respectful community for all students, faculty, and staff.
Some of our Initiatives for 2020-2021:

    • Bolstered membership of School of Theatre Equity, Diversity, Inclusion Committee;
    • Supported the establishment of the School of Theatre Student Diversity Committee;
