UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - The College of Education's Higher Education Program and the Center for the Study of Higher Education are recognizing major milestones during the upcoming Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts, July 9–11, 2010.

Friends, faculty, students, and others will celebrate 60 years of the Higher Education Program (1950–2010) and 40 years for the Center for the Study of Higher Education (1969–2009) with a variety of formal and informal activities at the Nittany Lion Inn.

The events are sponsored by the College of Education, the Penn State Alumni Association, and the Higher Education Program Alumni Council (HEPAC), which is an affiliate program group of the College of Education Alumni Society and the Penn State Alumni Association.

The purpose of the Higher Education Program Alumni Council is to unite and facilitate interaction among and between the constituencies of the Higher Education Program at Penn State, including faculty, students, staff, former faculty, friends, and alumni of the program. For more information about HEPAC and ways you can get involved, please contact the president of HEPAC, Susan Richardson at susanrichardson@educationbythenumbers.com.
