Diversity in the Liberal Arts
The College of the Liberal Arts is committed to the recruitment, development, graduation, and placement of outstanding students from diverse backgrounds. Over twenty-five per cent of Liberal Arts graduate students are international, including many from Asia and Africa; and over 17% of domestic students are minorities. In addition to substantial financial aid, minority students at Penn State and in the Liberal Arts can count on funding, support services, cultural events, and research and professional development opportunities that they need to reach their goals.
