“The breadth and depth of Undergraduate Education departments reach throughout the University community, including critical information services like LionPATH, academic policy changes, orientation programs, scholarship support, involvement in undergraduate research and more," said Beth Kocher Gormley, director of communications for Penn State Undergraduate Education.

Sent via email every Wednesday during the academic year, the headlines issue functions as a resource for administrators, as well as the Penn State community at large seeking the latest information from the Office of Undergraduate Education.
