We recently received the following message from Dara E. Purvis (Associate Dean for Diversity and Inclusion at Penn State Law):
“The Penn State Law community reflects our mission of diversity and the acceptance of differences in thought, background, age, life experience, gender, race, abilities, religion, and culture.
I would like to share with you some of the ways that we celebrate, support, and strengthen diversity within our community:
- Our Minority Mentor Program pairs law students from underrepresented groups with two mentors (in addition to their mentor from our Comprehensive Mentoring Program); one on campus plus an alumni mentor;
- The annual Diversity Banquet honors students and members of the legal community who have contributed to the development of the legal profession and its diversity;
- Students build networks and explore professional interests in our varied student organizations, which include:
I encourage you to learn more about Penn State Law and what we have to offer. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or for more information.”
