Students reminded to complete race, ethnicity survey

May 04, 2009

All students are reminded that Penn State must comply with new federal requirements for collecting and reporting racial and ethnic data, a mandate that applies to colleges and universities nationwide. All current students should visit https://elion.psu.edu to participate in the data collection. You will be asked a question about ethnicity and then asked to identify your race from a multiple-choice list. Data collection applies to all full-time and part-time students, at all levels, at all Penn State locations, including the Penn State World Campus. The University will keep all individual information confidential and will report only aggregate totals in each category. Visit http://live.psu.edu/STORY/39224 for more information.
