Library to hold ‘Diversity in Engineering’ Open House

A “Diversity in Engineering” Open House will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. Feb. 27, in the Engineering Library, 325 Hammond Building on the University Park campus of Penn State. This special event celebrates minorities in engineering and promotes services and resources that the library, college and University provide.

Highlights of the event include a demonstration of the Libraries’ new “Diversity in Engineering” research guide and a display of historical minority figures in the field. All students are invited to attend the Open House, have a slice of cake and ask library staff about the resources available. In addition, the incoming chair of the Libraries’ Diversity Committee Dawn Amsberry, will be at the event from 1 to 2:30 p.m., and can answer questions about the Libraries’ diversity initiatives.

Two more events will be held this semester -- a Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering Open House, from 1 to 4 p.m. on Tuesday, March 25, and a Sustainable Engineering Open House from 1 to 4 p.m. on Thursday, April 17. More information will be provided closer to the event dates.
