As Penn State DuBois has adjusted to remote learning, faculty and staff have remained equally committed to the mission of helping students apply their education to launch rewarding careers. Recently, a Virtual Career Fair was held, affording students the opportunity to gain experience in interviewing for jobs and in presenting themselves in a professional setting.
This semester, students in the Human Development and Family Studies (HDFS) program teamed up with local nonprofit, Square One, to address the rising concern of the opioid epidemic in the region and how it is changing the shape of families.
Director of Student Affairs Rebecca Pennington has received the inaugural Penn State DuBois Staff of the Year Excellence Award. The award is extended to a staff member who goes above and beyond their normally assigned job responsibilities in resolving a particularly difficult dilemma, being exceptionally creative, or being responsive to others.
The Penn State DuBois Student Government Association (SGA) has announced award winners for the 2019-20 academic year. The SGA Awards Banquet originally scheduled for May 1 was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but student leaders still wish to recognize award winners for their success in serving the campus and their community.
