The University’s Commission for Women will be under the leadership of Penn State Harrisburg’s Auden Thomas in 2009 and 2010.
Dr. Thomas, the director of the Center for Survey Research in the college’s Institute of State and Regional Affairs, has been elected the commission’s chair-elect for the 2008-09 academic year and will become chair in 2009.
Seven Penn State Harrisburg undergraduate students majoring in Structural Design and Construction Engineering Technology have each been awarded $2,500 scholarships by the Associated General Contractors of America.
The seven scholarships, awarded annually until the students graduate, are the second most awarded nationally to any college or university. Only the University of Washington, with eight, surpassed the Penn State Harrisburg total.
Twenty-six undergraduate and graduate students in Penn State Harrisburg’s School of Business Administration have achieved excellence in their studies and have been inducted as lifetime members of Beta Gamma Sigma.
Penn State Harrisburg Assistant Professor of Humanities and Art History/Visual Culture Robin Veder will deliver an invited lecture April 14 at Princeton University as part of its spring Architecture and Urbanism Lecture Series on the theme of “Gardening.”
The series is arranged by the Princeton Center for Architecture, Urbanism + Infrastructure.
