Welcome to BUILD @ Penn State
Broadening Understanding and Inclusion through Learning & Dialogue
At Penn State we recognize the importance of making our University more diverse and welcoming for our students, faculty, staﬀ, alumni, and donors. The BUILD @ Penn State initiative represents the action we are taking together to create a more inclusive community where we can all thrive and succeed.
This University-wide diversity education initiative for our faculty and staﬀ aligns with the University’s Strategic Plan, which out-lines “Advancing Inclusion, Equity, and Diversity” as one of its foundations. We have an obligation to ﬁght ignorance and intolerance, model inclusivity, and embrace the power that diversity represents as part of our mission to cultivate the next generation of leaders within the Commonwealth and across the globe.
We ask you to lean on the “We Are” spirit of Penn Staters to focus on building an environment that is welcoming and inclusive of all members of our community.
