Congratulations Faculty and Staff
Guadalupe Kasper, program manager of the Penn State Educational Partnership Program (PEPP) in Reading, Pa., is the subject of a biography that is part of a newly released book, Berks County Women in History: Profiles, Volume 2 (Tudor Gate Press, 2008). The book is a project of the Berks County Commission for Women.
The chapter titled “Guadalupe Rivera Kasper” describes Kasper’s family heritage as well as her educational background and career. “It is her passion for education, her scientific research skills, organizational and leadership acumen and her closely knit family and community ties that provide Lupe with the rich and deep source of energy she uses to improve the quality of the lives of many area Berks County residents,” states the biography’s author, Rebecca Hartman.
Tineke Cunning, affiliate assistant professor of counselor education, has been appointed the new director of international career services in Penn State's School of International Affairs.
The School of International Affairs was launched in July 2007. It offers a professional master’s degree in international affairs with several specialty concentrations. The School’s mission is to prepare exceptional students for careers and leadership positions in both the private and public sectors of an increasingly interdependent world.
