Office of Diversity and Inclusion

A diverse community fuels
our science and success.

We provide a nurturing environment to support students academically, professionally, and personally in the Eberly College of Science. We connect students with the resources they need to leverage and engage with programs and organizations, fueling student success and advancing scientific knowledge by building a strong, diverse community.

Graduate students at Eberly will find individualized and community support in addition to the academic excellence they expect in science at Penn State. We offer several fellowship opportunities to support your studies.


In order to maintain a diverse community, you must recruit a diverse community. We support several programs and activities to further our mission of building a more diverse and inclusive community at Penn State.

Diversity Outreach
It's important to find your community. It doesn't have to be in science, specifically. But you have to be intentional about it.
