A thank you from Dean Susan Welch


The College of the Liberal Arts is an exciting place to be! Dynamic faculty, outstanding undergraduate and graduate students, and life-changing learning experiences for our students all contribute to make Liberal Arts a world-class college. Our key programs are national and international leaders.

We couldn’t have done it without you, our generous donors and benefactors. We are so grateful for your support that has allowed us to hire and retain outstanding faculty, recruit top graduate students and prepare them for great jobs, provide access to hundreds of students who would not otherwise be able to afford a Penn State education, and establish new leading edge programs in fields ranging from ethics and democracy to children’s development and big data.

This web site offers a snapshot of some of the results of your giving, just a few of the Liberal Arts students, faculty, and programs that have benefited from the For the Future campaign and have helped make the College what it is today. None of this would have been possible without your support.
On behalf of our faculty, students, and staff, I thank you for your role in making the College of the Liberal Arts a national leader and for helping us provide our students with a first-class education.

Sincerely yours,

Susan Welch
