Penn State Commissions

Three University-wide President's Equity Commissions meet regularly at Penn State. The Commission on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Equity (CLGBTE); the Commission on Racial/Ethnic Diversity (CORED); and the Commission for Women (CFW) are advisory bodies to the Penn State President on matters that pertain to equity concerns at Penn State. While the commissions focus on their own specific areas of interest, they also collaborate on common equity issues as they arise.

The following Libraries employees currently serve on one of the Commissions. We thank these employees for their service to the University. Membership applications for all commissions are accepted in February of each year. We encourage Libraries participation in this valuable work.
