New Name and New Office for the College's Multicultural Unit

The College's multicultural services unit has a new name and a new look.


By Joe Savrock (March 2007)


The new Multicultural Programs office boasts an open, contemporary look.

A spanking new office area on the first floor of Chambers Building recently became the new home for the College's Multicultural Programs, formerly known as Multicultural Student Services.

The new suite, located at 123 Chambers Building, includes a contemporary reception area, open work stations for staff and graduate assistants, and attractive offices for director Maria Schmidt and program assistant Charleon Jeffries.

The bright, open atmosphere projects the unit's mission of providing a welcoming and supportive environment in the College.

123 Chambers had a much different look just several months ago.

Over the past several months, the quarters underwent a complete tranformation from lecture room to office suite, thanks to the skills of Penn State's OPP workers.

Stop by the new office and wish the best to the Multicultural Programs staff.
