Tenants - Access to College Resources
Penn State Erie, The Behrend College, is an undergraduate and graduate college of a major research and land-grant university—The Pennsylvania State University. Land-grant institutions were founded with the idea that higher education could maintain classical and scientific studies but also should be responsive to the needs of the public. Penn State Behrend takes this land-grant mission seriously, as is reflected in this passage from the college’s mission statement:
Penn State Behrend provides innovative, integrated and high-quality teaching, research, and outreach programs, with a particular focus on serving the tristate region’s economic, social, and intellectual development.
To this end, the college has developed a number of initiatives that attend to community needs, especially in the area of economic and community development. These outreach- and research-related programs fall into six broad categories that build on the physical and intellectual capacity of the college.
- Promotion of entrepreneurship among the college’s faculty, staff, and students.
