Engagement Space

An interactive space to connect students with opportunities.
The Engagement Space invites students, faculty and staff, alumni, and community members to learn more about the impact of student engagement and connect with others who are passionate about the topic. Our student engagement mentors can help fellow students find opportunities to enrich their learning experience, work with faculty to build connections and get involved, and explain the value of engagement to the wider Penn State community.

Reserve a Spot

Any University-affiliated club, office, program, or partner can reserve the Engagement Space. Participants should be prepared to speak to students about available opportunities, as well as the impact their involvement has had on them as individuals, as a group, and as part of the larger Penn State community. All content must be tailored to support the Student Engagement Network mission. Promotional examples include outreach and/or engagement mission, available opportunities for students to get involved in, and other programs and/or events that encourage student participation.

Submit Digital Content

Any Penn State faculty and staff member can submit content to be displayed in the Engagement Space. Examples of accepted content are grants, fellowships, application deadlines for programs and/or learning opportunities, student engagement experiences (i.e. research, internships, volunteer work, etc.), and events. All content must be directly relevant to undergraduate students.

The Future Space

Exterior Walls

The exterior media walls will serve as the attraction loop for the overall experience by defining student engagement, promoting student success stories, offering program and event information, and highlighting new leadership and engagement opportunities. Using the latest in digital technology, the flexibility of the layout will allow for data-oriented graphics, photos, and social media interaction.

Interior Walls

The interior walls will bring students together to explore the range of possibilities available through the Student Engagement Network. Visitors to the Engagement Space will be able to discover opportunities organized by aspirational themes rather than taxonomy, search by organization or event details, collaborate with friends and peers, and create connections through browsing or interests.
