Faculty, staff, and students in the Penn State College of Education are invited to sign up to win tickets to select performances from the Center for the Performing Arts at Penn State as part of the College’s annual Arts in Education program.

Now in its 10th year, the Arts in Education initiative provides College of Education students, faculty, and staff members with valuable shared experiences that increase our collective knowledge about and appreciation for the arts. The program was developed by the Student Advisory Forum and is based on the premise that all educators need to be in touch with the arts.
