The PSU administration has announced that Fall 2021 is our highly-anticipated return to in-person learning. For many of us, this is the news we’ve been waiting for since the shutdowns began, and we’re now thrilled to return to campus learning. But this pandemic has not only resulted in health and economic tragedy, it’s also taken a mental toll.
“Elevating Impact gives frameworks, perspectives, and inspiration to create positive social impact,” says Abby. “Past participants have met their co-founders at the event, created new classes based on the content, and changed the course of their career, based on their experience at The Elevating Impact Summit."
Ashley Lam shares, “Earlier in my career, I wish I had had more bravery to advocate for myself.” One manager I had said, ‘No one can read your mind on what you want and where you want to be in five years. You have to go out of your way to tell people what you want.’”
The campus is changing to meet the needs of students where they are, with classes and resources in a variety of formats that best fit their work and family schedules. “This is a challenging time,” says PSU President Stephen Percy. “And we are making new investments to ensure that we are able to support academic innovation and the vibrancy of our campus community. We will emerge from this pandemic stronger than ever.”
