Engagement Space

An interactive space to connect students with opportunities.

Summer Hours of Operation: 9:00 – 3:30 p.m., Monday-Friday

Launched in fall 2017, the Engagement Space invites students, faculty and staff, alumni, and community members to learn more about the impact of student engagement. 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. Interested individuals and/or groups should be prepared to speak to students about engagement opportunities (e.g. internships, volunteerism, student club/org involvement, etc.), available funding (e.g. grants, scholarships, fellowships, etc.), and special events or programs that align with the Student Engagement Network mission.

Promote an Opportunity

Any Penn State faculty or staff member can submit a digital sign to display in the Engagement Space. Digital signs must be 1920 x 1080 pixels (6.4 x 3.6 inches) in size. Files can be submitted in a number of formats, but must be in landscape orientation. Individuals should specify their preferred start and end dates, allowing 24 business hours for scheduling. Content will only be accepted if it pertains to student engagement opportunities.

Chat with Our Interns
