Our Mission

Our Mission

As a campus of The Pennsylvania State University system, Penn State Shenango shall serve students in the region who want to remain local while pursuing a limited number of highly desirable baccalaureate degrees and students who want to start locally but complete their pursuit of a wide array of baccalaureate degrees elsewhere within the University. The Shenango campus shall provide a rigorous learning environment to engage students in the college experience.  This is accomplished through small classes, individualized attention, and the opportunity to participate in undergraduate research, public service, and co-curricular activities and programs. Campus faculty members shall serve their profession and society through research, scholarship, and creative activities that promote the creation of knowledge, enhanced quality of life, outreach, and economic development, supporting a well-educated workforce positioned to assume leadership roles in the workplace and society.
