Penn State Harrisburg


Stand for State Logo

As a part of Penn State’s launch of Stand for State, an initiative aimed at empowering Penn Staters to stand up for one another and stop sexual and relationship violence,  Penn State Harrisburg will hold its kickoff event on January 26 from 11:15 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. in the Olmsted Building atrium.

Due to changes in the construction schedule, the construction work originally slated for this Saturday, January 23 at the Penn State Harrisburg library has been delayed, and will now take place on Saturday, February 6 and Saturday, February 13.  As a result, the library will be closed those days.
