"Pennsylvania realizes the importance of assimilating the Hispanic culture into America. We are trying to embrace the diversity, we are doing everything we can to assure every child from every background gets an equal opportunity for an education"

--Pedro Cortes, Pennsylvania Secretary of the Commonwealth, who addressed Penn State faculty, students, staff and administrators March 25 during a visit to the University Park campus. His talk was sponsored by the University's Commission for Racial/Ethnic Diversity, and co-sponsored by the Commission for Women and the Commission on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Equity.
